Eastertide: Resurrection Victory
1 Corinthians 15:50-58

Warren Wiersbe once said, “If Jesus Christ can do nothing about death, then whatever else He can do amounts to nothing.” Death is, in the words of the Apostle Paul, the last enemy (1 Cor. 15:25), and one that we are powerless to overcome on our own. Praise God that through the resurrection of Jesus, He dealt with that problem for us! Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus, death has now lost its sting (15:55). But what does that mean? After all, we live still in a world marked by death and decay. And how should our lives, as believers, be different as a result of Jesus’ victory over death?

“Hope means hoping when things are hopeless, or it is no virtue at all…As long as matters are really hopeful, hope is mere flattery or platitude; it is only when everything is hopeless that hope begins to be a strength.” GK Chesterton

Prayer Point

  • Pray that your group and our church would lay hold of the beauty of the hope that we have through the victory of Jesus over death.
