1 Corinthians 15 Summary

The chapter begins with a simple reminder of what the gospel is: The gospel is the announcement of victory over death, through Jesus Christ, which comes primarily through preaching.

This gospel will save you if you hold firmly to the Word you've heard preached, otherwise you're wasting your time.

Notice the tension here - your salvation is dependent upon your strength to hold firmly, but yet never forget it's God who's giving you this strength, and He's developing your strength to hold on through Spiritual Disciplines like reading the Bible and hearing the gospel preached.

The most fundamental aspect of the Gospel is that:

  • Christ died for our sins

  • He was buried and raised three days later

  • His resurrected body was witnessed by hundreds of people.

Sadly, every generation has the 'we believe Jesus was a great guy but we don't believe in miracles like life after death' people.

If Jesus hasn't been raised, your faith is a futile waste of time.

If you just want to think of Jesus as a wise teacher we should emulate, who helps you 'live your best life now,' then you are the most pitiful of people.

But Jesus has indeed been raised from the dead! He's replaced the fallen Adam as our new covenant head, and He will rule over all things.

Death, is a process, made necessary by sin, by which our natural bodies are sown in the ground and are raised into new, imperishable, spiritual bodies. We must be clothed with the immortality in this way in order to inherit the Kingdom of God.

Christ has been raised, and since you're in Him, you also will be raised! Because this is true, don't get kicked around by this world. Instead, go all out in doing the work of the Lord.

AAA Prayer:

  • ACKNOWLEDGE WHO GOD IS: God the Father who raised Jesus Christ from the dead (v15)

  • ALIGN YOUR LIFE WITH GOD'S WILL: Pray that God will fully wake your senses that you will live fully in Christ, both now and in the life to come (v34)
