Chapter-a-Day 1 Corinthians 15

Sin_guilt_and_deathBut now in a single victorious stroke of Life, all three—sin, guilt, death—are gone, the gift of our Master, Jesus Christ. Thank God! 1 Corinthians 15:57 (TM)

My experiences have taught me that there are three things that truly haunt people:

  • The agony of knowing the right thing to do, yet being enslaved to our willful wrong choices
  • The ball-and-chain of guilt and shame that comes from mistakes, wrong choices and their lingering consequences
  • The sobering reality that death awaits us all

Jesus came to free us from that which haunts us. All you have to do is believe.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day 1 Corinthians 15”

  1. It’s resurrection, resurrection, always resurrection, that undergirds what I do and say, the way I live. If there’s no resurrection, “We eat, we drink, the next day we die,” and that’s all there is to it. But don’t fool yourselves.
    This is sooooooo true. The hope and promise of salvation is why I live the way I do. I used to think that living for God may be in vain because we couldn’t truly know that OUR religion was the right one. That hasn’t changed, but I now know that it is less about religion and all about FAITH. I praise God for this gift.
