The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:56-57)
Death feels painful and permanent, and an impossibe enemy to cheat or beat. The good news of the gospel is that we don’t have to beat death - Jesus Christ has done that for us. Jesus’ victory over death is given to us by God so that we can share his eternal life.
I hope you can join us this Sunday as we look at the final part of 1 Corinthians 15, and the glorious truths of the resurrection to eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ.
I hope that this email is useful, and that you are able to spend a few minutes at noon each day, as we pray together as a church family. Please do keep sending your prayer suggestions to me, so that we can make sure we are praying around the needs, burdens and encouragements of our whole church family.
But someone will ask, ‘How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?’ (1 Corinthians 15:35)
What will the resurrection look like? What will we look like? How will it happen? Jesus is risen, and so will his people be, but what will it be like? I hope you can join us this Sunday as we look at some of what the resurrection from the dead will look like for us.
