1 Corinthians 15:1-11
Let’s review all the things that Paul has had to address with this church.
• divisions based on who baptized them
• differing levels of spiritual maturity
• the ministry of the apostles
• sexual immorality
• how to handle lawsuits
• principles for marriage and singleness
• head coverings
• the Lord’s supper
• spiritual gifts
Yet, here towards the end of his letter, Paul wanted to remind them of what he called “of first importance.”
OF FIRST IMPORTANCE
- Christ died.
- Christ was buried.
- Christ was raised.
- Christ was seen alive.
Paul told us in the previous chapter that God is not a God of confusion. How, then, does life get so confusing?
Life becomes complicated when we forget the fundamentals.
Lord, help us keep the main thing the main thing and not, as a former professor would say, “major in the minors.” May it always and only be about You.
