The Resurrection


1 Corinthians 15:51-58

Listen to this secret truth: we shall not all die,

but when the last trumpet sounds;

we shall all be changed in an instant,

as quickly as the blinking of an eye when the trumpet sounds,

the dead will be raised, never to die again, and we shall all be changed.

For what is mortal must be changed into what is immortal;

what will die must be changed into what cannot die.

S0 when this takes place, and the mortal has been changed into the immortal,

then the scripture will come true: “Death is destroyed; victory is complete!”

Where, Death, is your victory?

Where, Death, is you power to hurt?”

Death gets its power to hurt from sin, and sin gets its power from the Law.

But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!

So then, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm and steady.

Keep busy always in your work for the Lord, since you know that nothing you do in the Lord’s service is ever useless.
