Random Ramblings

Just a few of my thoughts on the world around me

Easter Sunday!

1 Corinthians 15:1-29

15 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.

And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.

12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:

14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:

17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.

19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?

Happy good Friday to all you ramblers. I hope you can spend your weekend reflecting on our Lord and His sacrifice as you celebrate your Easter. If you live in the Kansas City area and don’t have a church to go to Sunday, I invite you to come join us at Tri-City Baptist in Independence, Missouri.

Oops!, Competition, and other ramblings.

Wait, yesterday was Friday? And I didn’t do a special post? Rats! I’m sorry, guys, I’ve been a bit busy lately.

Yesterday was also the Elementary version of the competition I was in last week. My little sister sang a solo for the first time and she did fantastic! Out of twelve girls, all twelve got top ratings. She originally tied for second with another girl from our school, but since the judges weren’t allowed to turn in scores that tied in the music catagories, she got third instead. She is only 12, but her voice is very mature. She was really nervous in the practice just before, but when she entered the competition room, she transformed. She was so expressive and had very little tone troubles. Her music teacher was very impressed as well. One of her friends said, “In my opinion, Lizzy should have gotten first. I got chills hearing her sing. Her voice is amazing!”

I was working in the headquaters of the competition, as it is held at our school. That meant I got to see her judge’s sheets as well as the place she got, but wasn’t allowed to say anything until after the awards ceremony. That sure was hard!

Well, I’m off. Have a great weekend everyone! (BTW, does anyone wanna hear her sing?)

I will be going to nationals soon, but I wanted you all to hear this.  Oh, and this is not me, the video of me had terrible sound quality. Enjoy!
