A PRESENT HOPE The bodily resurrection... ● is central to the gospel message. (1 Corinthians 15:3-8) ● reminds us of our union with Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:20-22) ● declares the ultimate t riumph of Jesus over sin and death. ( 1 Corinthians 15:54-57) ● affirms that our toil and labor in this life are not in vain. ( 1 Corinthians 15:58) A FUTURE HOPE The bodily resurrection... ● builds anticipation for a life that is bigger than our imaginations. (1 Corinthians 15:42-49) ● joins us to an eternal kingdom. ( 1 Corinthians 15:50-53) QUESTIONS TO PONDER ● How do you know if you are taking the resurrection for granted? What steps can you take to guard yourself against this attitude? ● Everyone has challenges they want to overcome. Take a few moments and think about some challenges you are currently facing. In what ways does the gospel (and the resurrection) give you hope and strength to overcome life’s challenges?
