"I'm glad to be here with you Samwise Gamgee, here at the end of all things." - Frodo
This is my last talk with RUF at Arkansas (I recently took a job to be the Campus Minister at the University of Tennessee). And because I'm an enneagram 4 and melodramatic...I had to quote Tolkien from Lord of the Rings! But because of COVID-19, we had our last RUF Large Group over Zoom. Aaaaaaand... I was in my mother-in-law's bedroom for my last sermon!
Anyway, I thought to myself, What would I want my students to hear? What do I need to hear? And that's how we came to 1 Corinthians 15. Paul says that the gospel of Jesus is "of first importance." So, my beloved Arkansas students, remember the gospel.
Christ was born. Christ has died. Christ has risen. Christ will come again.
TEXT: 1 Corinthians 15:1-10
