    [1] Now there were in the church at Antioch prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a lifelong friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.

    [4] So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.

    Alive

    1 Corinthians 15:12-22

    Dr. Don Wilton

    Each of us has a story—circumstances, memories, and scars that make us unique and have an impact on our lives. God understands everything about us and cares about the details of our lives, even though we sometimes feel we are navigating life alone.

    Sin entered the world with Adam and Eve’s disobedience, a decision that affected all humankind. Faith allows us to trust and believe Jesus paid the debt for our sins with his death on the cross and was raised from death to live again. Because Jesus is alive, we have access to God the Father. Hallelujah!
