Living in Dependence upon the Resurrection

I Corinthians 15:12-19

April 13, 2024 • Tim Cain • 1 Corinthians 15:12–19

Paul tells the Corinthians that if we have put our hope in Christ for this life only then we are above all the most to be pitied. Why does he say that? In this message we will consider what it was about Paul’s life that would lead him to make this statement and we will consider what it would look like for us to imitate him in this even as he was imitating his precious Savior. We will also rejoice that Christ has indeed risen again from the dead proving that there is nothing to pity about a child of God.

The Priority of Generosity

May 25, 2024 • Tim Cain • 1 Corinthians 16:1–4

What is it that makes money so attractive? Is it the freedom and the control that it offers? Is it the security it gives in the midst of all the uncertainties of the future? Or maybe it’s the comfort and pleasure that money promises? In this message, we will compare the promises of money and the promises of the Gospel and find that, in the end, Jesus is better. Lastly, we will consider what it would look like to live as if Jesus and not money were our greatest treasure.

Not in Vain

May 18, 2024 • Joshua Moffit • 1 Corinthians 15:58

If you have a worldview "under the sun" it seems like everything is vanity and a striving after wind. That is certainly how life often feels. Our labor is not always fruitful or lasting. Hurt, disappointment, unmet expectations, lost dreams, and failure are part of our shared human experience in this fallen world. However, the gospel flips all of that upside down! Jesus has been raised from the dead and so we have the assurance that in the Lord our labor is not in vain! 

Death’s Defeat!

May 11, 2024 • Tim Cain • 1 Corinthians 15:50–57

Have you ever longed to see death destroyed? Think of all of the havoc death has wreaked and the pain that it has caused. Well in I Corinthians 15 Paul points us towards a day where death will be no more. A day where the one who seemed to swallow everything in his path will be swallowed up in victory.
