Sunday, April 30, 2006

Last Sunday, we once again celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ by gathering as a body. Anthony C. taught us from 1 Corinthians 15:50-58. Why did Paul write such a long section concerning the resurrection? Did he want us to know that "this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality"? Did he want to remind us, "Death is swallowed up in victory"? Certainly these truths are important. But, Paul wrote this part of his letter to Corinth as an encouragement and an admonition: "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord."

Next week, Mael D. will teach us as we begin studying the final chapter of 1 Corinthians.
