The gospel, Christ came, died, and rose again and many people saw Him. Paul starts correcting again. Yes, we will rise again, he insists… Or we are most to be pitied…we are deluded and hopeless, pursuing discipline when there is nothing better to work for.
Because of the resurrection, Christ is the first One to know the freedom of new life!
Adam was the first man who left a heritage of humanity, vulnerable. Christ gave us a heritage of life, refreshment,
And He defeats all enemies, right down to death. That is empowering! He is giving us this new life and it starts now!
“Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.”
Read the comparisons side by side. Old…new…death…life…
This is a jump up and celebrate chapter! Hallelujah!
