Guywire's 40 Day Study - The Word - Day 4
In this verse, the apostle Paul is encouraging the Corinthian church that Christ did in fact rise from the dead as prophesied in the Old Testament.
For our benefit we can be thankful that God through His Holy Spirit has documented this fact in His Word; The Bible.
Christ’s resurrection in which He overcame sin and death on our behalf is the most important tenet of our faith as Christians.
A verse earlier, Paul says, if you have not firmly held to this word I have preached then you have believed in vain.
This is why it is vitally important that we share this gospel and remind people of it’s significance.
To you believers, take the time to lovingly remind those you love who are older or terminally ill that Christ died and rose again for their sake throwing open the gates of heaven.
Ours is to just accept this lavish gift of grace and await our eternal inheritance prepared for us in paradise.
