Focus passage: So if the message that is preached says that Christ has been raised from the dead, then how can some of you say, “There’s no resurrection of the dead?” 1 Corinthians 15:12
Throughout the letter, Paul has been encouraging the fractured community to remember that it was the message of Christ that brought them together and that same message can help them to find unity and a way forward together.
In the middle of all of the conflict and arguing that was happening, Paul speaks resurrection into the community, he begins with Christ’s resurrection and draws us out of our own narrow views to see the wide expanse of God’s grace and offer of resurrection each and every day.
Resurrection is ultimately about transformation. Seek God’s transformation in your daily living today, may it be the prayer behind your actions and your words.
Prayer: God you conquer all of our fears, help me to live fully today free from the things that bring me down and rob me of joy. Amen.
