First Fruit

Since we proclaim that Christ arose, be sure the same is true for us.

For if the dead will live no more, then Christ himself stays dead, for sure.


If what we preach is not the word, misrepresents the way of God,

Then faith is futile and our sin is what, when comes the end, will win. 


In Christ we see the end of strife; the first fruit of eternal life.

His resurrection shows us all creation rescued from the fall.
