What’s the Point?

1 Corinthians 15:12-34

Paul goes to great lengths to expand the imaginations of some Corinthians around Jesus’ resurrection and their own. There are different opinions and beliefs circulating that he’s trying to correct. The main question from Paul to the believers in Corinth is this: What’s the point?!?!?! If there is no resurrection, what are we even doing? These verses are meant to expand our sense of awe and wonder precisely because Jesus rose from the dead.

To have a spiritual imagination is to have eyes to see God’s world for what it truly is: the ground where God fills the whole earth with his glory. When God fills the world, we discover every conversation and vocation and human endeavor to be a burning bush. Holiness everywhere. God everywhere. – Winn Collier

Prayer Points
• Pray that those in our fellowship would be awakened to the kind of life that isn’t oriented around competence, certainty, or control. That we would be willing and eager to be caught off guard by resurrection wonder.
• Pray for those in our fellowship who are experiencing an extraordinarily difficult season of life. Life is both beautiful and brutal. Pray that God would remind and reinforce the beauty of it all via the resurrection reality that this isn’t the end of the story.
