April 12, 2020, 1 Corinthians 15 – Post 3 – ISSL Reflections

VII.
“Therefore, my beloved, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord, because you know that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” – 1 Corinthians 15:58

By these words Paul brings to a conclusion the encouragement he offers the Christians at Corinth.

Has he offered them sufficient grounds to be “… steadfast, immovable, always excelling …”?

What has he offered them to contrast with the vain faith, vain grace and vain labors they might otherwise have?

Would it be the first fruits of resurrection? Is that answer too simple or maybe too unbelievable?

I offer you these questions on the day many call “Good Friday.”

I would also remind you of what Tony Campolo says, “It’s Friday, but Sunday’s coming!”
