Read the sermon text: 1 Corinthians 15:35-58

Read the sermon summary: In this passage, Paul continues his defense and exposition of the doctrine of resurrection from the dead. He’s heard about some of the Corinthian Christians who were mocking the idea of a bodily resurrection. They couldn’t conceive of such a thing. But Paul shows them that believing in the bodily resurrection of believers is not only reasonable, it is also essential to faith in Christ. If there’s no resurrection, then there’s no way we can enter the Kingdom of God. If there’s no resurrection, there’s no victory over sin, no victory over death, and all of our work is in vain. But since the resurrection of the dead is true, we have hope. We who hope in Christ will be transformed from the likeness of Adam into the likeness of Christ. Through him we have victory over sin and death. Through him we have the confidence to stand firm in the faith knowing our labor is not in vain.

Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:

Man Of Sorrows
Man of sorrows Lamb of God
By His own betrayed
The sin of man and wrath of God
Has been on Jesus laid

Silent as He stood accused
Beaten mocked and scorned
Bowing to the Father's will
He took a crown of thorns

Oh that rugged cross my salvation
Where Your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out hallelujah
Praise and honour unto Thee

Sent of heaven God's own Son
To purchase and redeem
And reconcile the very ones
Who nailed Him to that tree

Now my debt is paid
It is paid in full
By the precious blood
That my Jesus spilled
Now the curse of sin
Has no hold on me
Whom the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed

See the stone is rolled away
Behold the empty tomb
Hallelujah God be praised
He's risen from the grave
