YET Looking Towards The Future

January 11, 2014

Saturday

1 Corinthians 15:17

And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

 

EXAMPLE

I think there is a world market for about five computers.

– Thomas J. Watson

 

LESSON

Paul is discussing the hope of believers. Paul’s argument was that since Christ was raised, there must also be a resurrection of believers. If Christ was still dead and in the grave, then confidence (“faith”) in Him for salvation is futile.  This means the believer is “still” dead “in his or her sins.” He or she is without any hope of forgiveness or eternal life. So Christians who had already died would be lost forever, eternally separated from God.

Just as Moses redeemed the children of Israel out of Egypt and took them to their promised land, Jesus will redeem us from this earth and take us to our promised land. The Lord is going to redeem those who are looking for Him. It is a dangerous thing to doubt the resurrection.
