Re:Verse reading–1 Corinthians 15:50-58 (day two)
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.” vs. 57-58
Death-sin, mortal-immortal, perishable-imperishable…RESURRECTION-VICTORY
Paul, in this power-packed chapter of his first letter to the church in Corinth, has given us the bottom line for our faith’s defense: The power of the resurrection. Where there was death, now there is life. What was corruptible, is now incorruptible. There is no other power or person in heaven or earth that can grant this kind of victory.
Therefore we can be IMMOVABLE in our conviction. Steadfast beyond the world’s understanding. Jesus is the only reason for such complete redemption, and only through the power of his resurrection. Those found in him, can claim the victory too.
