Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus

1 Corinthians 16 13 Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. 14 Let all that you do be done with love. 15 I urge you, brethren—you know the household of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the ministry of the saints— 16 that [...]

First Fruits

1 Corinthians 16 2 On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come. 2 On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with [...]

Have Victory Today

The enemy wants to keep us poor and wounded. An army that is wounded cannot fight and an army that is poor has no resources, but we are victorious. The Lord see’s our work, even if men do not care. Continue to fight in Jesus’ name. 1 Corinthians 15 56 The sting of death is [...]

Not in Vain

Resurrection of the dead

1 Corinthians 15 35 But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?” 36 How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. 37 When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat [...]

All Enemies Under His Feet

If the dead are not raised…

1 Corinthians 15 12 Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. 14 And if Christ is not risen, then our [...]

I am the least

1 Corinthians 15 9 For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than [...]

Silence?

1 Corinthians 14 34 Let your[d] women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. 35 And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in [...]
