1 Corinthians 15

Read 1 Corinthians 15.

What’s love got to do with it? Love is never wasted. Or to be more specific, the grace of God is never wasted. The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus is the story of God’s grace made visible, and the lives we live by faith in Jesus are not in vain either. Paul’s argument is that the resurrection of Jesus and his victory over death guarantee our victory as we continue “the work of the Lord.” There are times when we may wonder if our efforts to proclaim the good news of Jesus with our words and our works is worth it. The resurrected Jesus reminds us that what looks like a dead end might just be the way to new life. And there’s only one way to find out:

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:58, ESV
