Sermon About Resurrection: His Body, Our Bodies1 Corinthians 15

What’s so important about Christ’s resurrection?

1. Christ’s resurrection is a key part of the gospel.

  • (1 Cor 15:1-3a) The gospel is so vital that our faith is founded on it.
  • (1 Cor 15:3b-8) The gospel has three key elements:
  • (1 Cor 15:9-11) The gospel brings salvation to all who believe.

In fact, many people have tried to discredit this part of the Christian story through the centuries. However, the resurrection is beyond dispute. The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is a historical that is accepted by many scholars around the world.

When we believe in Christ, we believe that He did what it took for us to receive eternal life. 

 Believing this, we trust in Christ and accept his gift of salvation— receiving forgiveness for our sins and eternal life with him in heaven.

It is apparent that God preserving these events throughout history so future generations could understand them and believe in Jesus Salvatior. Jesus  stated, “…I am with you always even unto the end of the sécs…” At his resurrection early  he appeared to his disciples (1 Corinthians 15:6), then ascended into heaven where he sits at God’s right hand

2. Christ’s resurrection will resurrect us in new bodies later.

Jesus’ resurrection becomes the source of a living hope for all believers 1Pt1:3,21. Gives hope not only in this life 1Co15:19. Gives blessed hope of His appearing Tit 2:13

  • (1 Cor 15:12-34) Christ’s resurrection is so vital that you should feel ashamed if you doubt it or your own resurrection.
  • (1 Cor 15:13-19) If Christ didn’t rise, then we have no hope.
  • (1 Cor 15:20-28) Since Christ did rise, we will rise and reign with Him.
  • (1 Cor 15:29-32) More dismal things result if Christ’s resurrection is false.
  • (1 Cor 15:33-34) Believing false teachers who deny the resurrection should make us feel ashamed.
  • (1 Cor 15:35-57) Christ’s resurrection will give us bodies that far outshine our earthly bodies.
  • (1 Cor 15:35) Since the resurrection is true, the next question is what kind of body it will be.
  • (1 Cor 15:36-41) The superiority of the resurrected body is shown in three illustrations from nature.
  • (1 Cor 15:42-57) Paul elaborates on the superiority of the resurrected body over the earthly body.

Through believing in Jesus Christ— who both lived and died as a sacrifice for sin — we can overcome sin ourselves so we can live eternally with our creator in heaven!

3. Our future resurrection should spur us to serve Him confidently now.

  • (1 Cor 15:58a) Stand firm in your belief in the resurrection.
  • (1 Cor 15:58b) Never let anyone or anything shake your faith.
  • (1 Cor 15:58c) Serve Christ wholeheartedly since you will be rewarded. 

The resurrection of Jesus and the promise of our resurrection, 1 Timothy 1:1. Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, by the commandment of God our Savior and the Lord Jesus Christ, our hope.

Eyewitness testimony of those who saw and spoke with Jesus, Acts 1:1-3. The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

Our hope is alive, 1 Peter 1:3.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
