How are the Dead Raised? Part 2 (Worship Service, May 29, 2016

Title: How are the dead Raised? Part 2

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:35-49

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: May 29th 2016

We must take God at his Word concerning the resurrection. The two
questions Paul poses in v. 35 are given in the voice of a skeptic:
Nevertheless, Paul defends the resurrection against such doubt. Such
an apologetic both silences the hardened skeptic and strengthens the
confused saint. Paul gives four reasons for us to trust God.
Last week:
1. The God who will raise us is all-powerful (34b).
2. The skepticism that doubts God comes from foolish evil (35-36a)
3. God’s power in creation is analogous to our resurrection (36b-41)
a. We are raised after death as the seed is raised after death.
b. We are raised by God’s power as the plant from the seed.
This week
c. God is sovereign over the resurrection as he is the creation.
d. Earthly bodies differ, as ours then will from ours now.
e. Heavenly bodies are above earthly, as ours then will from ours now.
f. Heavenly bodies differ from each other, as we will then.
4. Jesus Christ’s resurrection teaches us what form our own resurrection will take (42-49).

The Practical Christian Life (Without The Resurrection) Part 2 (Worship Service, May 15 2016)

Title: The Practical Christian Life (Without the Resurrection) Part 2

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:29-34

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: May 15th 2016

Affirming the resurrection has great effects on our life as believers. The reality of our resurrection ought to effect profoundly the way you live your life. If you truly believe that the living Jesus Christ will raise your dead bodies, you will live differently than if you didn’t believe this. In our passage, Paul suggests three ways.

 

Last week:

  1. We Die in Baptism (v. 29)
  1. We Die in Ministry (vv. 30-31a)

 

This Week:

  1. We Die to Sin (vv. 31b-34a)

The Practical Christian Life (Without the Resurrection) (Worship Service, May 8, 2016)

Title: The Practical Christian Life (Without the Resurrection)

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:29-34

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: May 8, 2016

Some Christians complain about theology because they think it isn’t practical. Vital Christianity, however, knows that doctrine is very practical. This morning I hope that through this message you understand how the resurrection of Christ has great effects on Christian practice. The reality of our resurrection ought to effect profoundly the way you live your life. Paul gives three ways:
1. We Die in Baptism (v. 29)
2. We Die in Ministry (vv. 30-31a)
Next Week:
3. We Die to Sin (vv. 31b-34a)

That God May Be All In All, Part 3 (Worship Service, May 1, 2016)

Title: That God May Be All In All, Part 3

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:23-28

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: May 1, 2016

In vv. 20-28, Paul offers positive arguments to affirm the resurrection of the dead. The fact that Jesus Christ is alive from the dead demands our resurrection and the making alive of all things. Jesus Christ is but the firstfruits of this promised future. The main point of vv. 23-28 is
the resolution of all creation is the glory of God in Christ and his resurrection. Paul gives three ways that God will do this, this sermon, Part 3, covers the final one.
