The “Therefore” of the Resurrection (Worship Service, July 10, 2016)

Title: The “Therefore” of the Resurrection

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:58

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: July 10, 2016

Do not mistake the brevity of v. 58 to mean that the practical consequences of the resurrection are not weighty. On the contrary, the resurrection has world-changing results in this life, leaving aside all that it means for us in eternity. Here’s the main point: You must live consistently with the reality of the resurrection. If Christ is alive, and if Christ will really raise you, then you should live differently. Paul gives us two great responses to the doctrine of the resurrection:

But in Fact Christ Has Been Raised (Worship Service, March 27, 2016)

Title: But in Fact Christ Has Been Raised

Passage: 1 Cor 15:20-22

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: March 27, 2016

Paul says in v. 20: But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead. The assertion stands out like a great, single, solitary mountain on a landscape. After all the hypotheticals that littered the previous paragraph, this assertion is true and real. This morning, as we consider vv. 20-22, the point of this sermon is to see that the fact that Christ has been raised means that we will be raised. How does the resurrection of Christ demand our resurrection?

Title: If the Dead are Not Raised, Part 2

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:11-19

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Morning Worship Service

Date: March 20, 2016

We looked at the first four consequences of denying the resurrection of the dead last week They all point to the main point of vv. 11-19, that the doctrine of a bodily resurrection is absolutely essential to the Christian faith. Paul has been slowly building a chain of consequences, one upon another. Today we look at the final three consequences of denying this doctrine.

If the Dead are Not Raised, Part 1 (Worship Service, March 13, 2016)

Title: If the Dead are Not Raised, Part 1

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:11-19

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Morning Worship Service

Date: March 13, 2016

Those who hold doctrinal error often do not realize the great doctrinal errors that flow out of that first initial error. By showing the consequences of a denial of the resurrection, the main point Paul makes is that the doctrine of a bodily resurrection is absolutely essential to the Christian faith. You cannot have Christianity without a bodily resurrection. We might ask why is this doctrine so important? Paul gives seven dreadful consequences of denying this doctrine.
