• The Covenant Fulfilled Devotional

    1 Corinthians 15:20-24

    We say we are saved by grace alone — which is absolutely true. But this grace is only available to us at Christ’s expense. Only because He came and perfectly fulfilled the covenant of works could God graciously impute His righteousness to us. Never forget the obedience and price Jesus paid in order to extend this grace to us. View Resource

  • The Everlasting Reign Devotional

    1 Corinthians 15:20–28

    Even as the world seems to get darker and darker we can be sure of one thing — that Jesus is on His throne and nothing is happening apart from His kingly authority. His sovereign reign allows us to trust Him in even the most difficult circumstances of life and gives us hope that our troubles are not ultimately in vain. Let us be encouraged by these words and press on, confident in the sovereign reign of the Savior. View Resource

  • The Resurrection of Christ Devotional

    1 Corinthians 15:20–57

    We must never downplay the glory and importance of our Lord’s resurrection. Not only does it provide for His vindication, but it is also the foundation for our own resurrection and victory over death. We do look forward to being in the presence of God at our deaths, but our final hope is the resurrection in which our spirits will be reunited with perfected bodies and when we will forever experience the glorified state that the Lord intended for us from the very beginning.

  • Are We Born Free Devotional

    1 Corinthians 15:22

    Few would claim the mantle of Pelagius today, but it is a common belief that God’s commands imply our ability to obey. Thus, many people overestimate the degree to which they have kept God’s law. We must have a strong, biblical doctrine of sin, or we will view ourselves more highly than we ought. Are you convinced that you are a sinner and without hope save for the grace of the Lord?

  • Bearing the Man of Heaven’s Image Devotional

    1 Corinthians 15:35–49

    We do not need to know many details about the intermediate state, or even our final state for that matter. It is enough to know that the Lord says it will be better than what we enjoy now, for He is trustworthy and we know that He only speaks the truth. Yet God is gracious in giving us some details to satisfy our curiosity. In any case, the best thing about heaven is that Christ will be there, and He will satisfy our deepest longings for goodness, truth, beauty, and love. View Resource

  • Rising from the Dust Devotional

    1 Corinthians 15:35-49

    Unfortunately, many early Christians found it hard to get rid of the Greek philosophical notion that matter is bad while spirit is good. That is not a biblical concept. The earth and all on it, including human beings, was originally “very good” (Gen. 1:31). Our salvation is more than just spiritual, our bodies will also be restored. Acknowledging this fact will help us to be more attuned to satisfying the earthly needs of others in anticipation of the restoration of all things. View Resource

  • Jesus The Last Adam Devotional

    1 Corinthians 15:45

    Christ came not merely to restore us to what we were before Adam’s fall but to give us something better. As the last Adam, Christ restores what was lost and guarantees that we will never lose it again. He gives us His perfect righteousness and is now conforming us into His image. If we are in Christ, we should be thankful daily for all that Christ has brought back to us as the last Adam View Resource

  • An Imperishable Body Devotional

    1 Corinthians 15:50–58

    The last trumpet sound will be music to the ears of the redeemed, but it will be a cacophony to those who have refused to submit to the one, true Lord of all. Wicked and righteous alike will be raised, the former to eternal destruction and the latter to life everlasting. Understanding this truth gives urgency to our evangelism and encourages us to press on, knowing that any suffering we face will not last forever. View Resource
