Laura Brooks, a 52-year-old mother of two, didn’t know it but she was one of 14,000 people in 2011 whose name was incorrectly entered into the government database as dead. She wondered what was wrong when she stopped receiving disability checks, and her loan payments and her rent checks bounced. She went to the bank to clear up the issue, but the representative told her that her accounts had been closed because she was dead! Obviously, they were mistaken.

1 Corinthians 15:12-26

Are there any two more devastating words than no hope? No hope beyond a devastating diagnosis, no hope when we lose our job, no hope when our loved one dies, and ultimately no hope when we face our own mortality?

At some point in our lives, we will all endure the kind of loss that will knock us off our feet and tempt us to abandon hope. And what if there is no resurrection? Then our lack of hope applies not just to this life but to eternity. And if that's the case, then there's nothing left in life but to eat, drink, and live it up.

This is just religious jealousy by this religious council, the Sanhedrin Council, against this man who has come along, stirring up the people, getting a lot of followers, getting people excited and teaching something, which is in direct conflict with what the Sanhedrin Council stood for. It is out of envy, out of jealousy.

3300 Dana Pankey Classic: (Self-reliance, Indifference toward God) Born in 1901, Dana, the son of the largest landowner/rancher in New Mexico, grew up around old-time cowboys and picked up their coarse language and attitudes. Thinking he could gain favor with God by being good, he ignored God and tried living a good life. When he encountered an old cowboy singing a Gospel song on a street corner, he placed his faith in Christ. Involved in a letter writing ministry to shut-ins, he suffered several strokes, able to type with only one finger, but continued his ministry.

Kelly hurried to catch up with her best friend. "Jenny, wait up," she called. "What's the big hurry? For days now you haven't had time to hang out or talk or anything."

"I know, but since my mom is sick, I need to get on home," Jenny replied. "She really needs my help. She's having chemotherapy to stop the cancer, but it makes her so tired."

"I'm sorry," said Kelly. "I just miss you and all the fun we used to have." She paused."Don't you hate having all that extra work?" Kelly asked. "It must be really hard for you. I know I'd hate doing so many chores!"

Jenny was stunned by Kelly's remark. "My mom is really sick, Kelly," Jenny emphasized. Tears pooled in her eyes and overflowed as she attempted to stifle a sob. "Mom has been there to take care of me my whole life. Now I want to be there for her and take care of her and do everything I can to make it easier for her. She's been the best mom ever, and I'm afraid of losing her to this awful cancer."

Kelly impulsively hugged Jenny hard. "That was a dumb thing for me to say. I'm sorry," Kelly apologized. "I wasn't thinking!"

"It's okay," said Jenny. After a minute, she added, "When Mom got sick, I learned that when you love someone, you help them because you want to, not just because you have to."

"That makes sense," Kelly admitted. "I know I'm being selfish when I complain about the chores I have to do at home." She paused, then added, "I remember our Sunday school lesson a few weeks ago about how we'll obey God's commands if we love Him. I guess that applies to our parents, too."

"I never thought I'd say this," Jenny confessed, "but I don't think I'll ever complain about my chores again. Right now, I feel like I'll just be so thankful to have Mom healthy again that I'll even love cleaning the bathroom for her."

Kelly laughed. "I'm still not sure I can say I'd love to do that, but at least I'd do it willingly." She turned up the driveway with Jenny. "Come on. I'll willingly help you, too."

How About You?
Do you serve God and others willingly--or grudgingly, just because you feel you have to? When you don't feel like doing the things you should, admit it to God and ask for the help of His Spirit. Loving God and loving others will give you the proper motive for service, and you'll want to obey God's commands and willingly serve Him by serving others.

Through love serve one another.

Episode Summary:

Jesus died to pay for our sins, but why is his resurrection from the dead so important? You’re invited to experience how our Savior conquered sin, death, and Satan for us all on this week’s Kids Corner.

Listen to this week's episode

Devotion:


Verse: 1 Corinthians 15:1-8

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.


Have you ever met someone who said, “I think that Jesus was a real person—even a man of God, but there’s no way he rose from the dead.  That’s just too crazy to believe.”  Have you ever been challenged that it is nonsense to believe Jesus is alive?  Do you have a reply?

Jesus did rise from the dead. Let’s look at the evidence.  Jesus spent 40 days after his resurrection talking to people.  Jesus physically appeared to Mary Magdalene, the two disciples walking to Emmaus, 10 of the disciples, and Thomas (who refused to believe Jesus was alive until he could physically see Jesus’ wounds).  Paul wrote that Jesus appeared to more than 500 fellow Christians—many of whom were still alive to testify. (I Corinthians 15:6)  More than 500 witnesses said Jesus was indeed alive!

James was the half-brother of Jesus.  He did not believe in Jesus as anyone’s savior….until Jesus appeared to him.  James then became a major leader of the Christian church.  Paul hated everything to do with Jesus; he hunted Christians down….until he met Jesus.  For the rest of his life, Paul traveled the world and wrote letters—proclaiming Jesus is alive!

The disciples were so afraid the night Jesus was arrested, they ran.   They weren’t scholars, they weren’t brave, they weren’t bold at all….until after Jesus rose.  For the rest of their lives, they boldly proclaimed the good news of Jesus’ salvation to everyone.  Only a truly living Jesus could inspire such a radical transformation in these men!

It’s not crazy to believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose again on the third day.  It’s very logical to look at the evidence and decide that Jesus did rise from the grave.  But Jesus doesn’t just want us to know that he is alive; Jesus wants our hearts, our lives, our love, all of us!  Jesus died to pay for our sins.  When he rose from the dead, he conquered sin and death—for us!  Hallelujah, Jesus is alive!

Discussion Guide:

This verse comes from Paul’s defense of the resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15. Here Paul says that the resurrection of Jesus from the dead is of “first importance” in his message to the Corinthians. He says, “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ dies for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.” Paul goes on to list others to whom Jesus appeared, all proof that this was not a figment of his, or anyone else’s imagination. 

Many have tried to explain away the resurrection of Jesus. But the resurrection is an essential part God’s rescue plan for us. Jesus died, but he didn’t stay in the grave. Jesus came out of the grave a risen Lord. This is essential to our faith, hope, and salvation.
