A Passage To Ponder: 1Corinthians 15

Thomas Fuller once wrote, “We’re born crying, live complaining and die disappointed.”

The famous author O’Henry said that “life is made of sobs, sniffles, and smiles; with sniffles predominating.

Janis Joplin, the folk singer of my generation, once lamented, “Life is something you do while waiting to die.”

Sadly these cynical and pessimistic views of life are held by many people today. The Bible, however, offer a view of life that it is confident, hopeful, positive and sees beyond this world.

In 1 Corinthians 15 as Paul comes to the grand conclusion of the validly of general resurrection based on the fact of Jesus’ resurrection, he writes, “So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory” (1 Cor. 15:54).

Through Jesus Christ’s resurrection, he “abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” (2 Tim. 1:9-10). He guarantees our victory! The grave is not our goal! The tomb is not the end! We will win out over death! “

Yet, as we live in this world and experience the daily struggles, sorrows, and challenges of life, how does this help?

(1) The hope of the resurrection provides me with power when I feel weak.
