Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. 1 Corinthians 15:1-8

If you are excited about it, you talk about it.

Have you ever discovered something you were so fired up about you just had to share it? Maybe it was a good book, gadget, or something more meaningful like a significant life event. We have all been there, and many of us have left a trail of evidence through social media, email, texting, and so on. If you caught the fish of your life or shot the state record buck, you tell someone. The gospel Paul speaks of is good news you share.

Notice what Paul does with the Corinthian people, he shares what he knows and what he experienced. The beauty of this example is that any man can replicate this process. Each follower of Jesus has a story to tell about the first time he was introduced to the Lord. There is plenty you may not know about Him, but speak to what you do. Like Paul, pass on what is of first importance. Share your story both in what you know about the risen Jesus and how you have encountered him.
