Week 44 Day 7
we are people of faith
but sometimes our faith is
we are like the disciples who came to Jesus
asking him to increase their faith
and the Lord told them about a mustard seed
so small it can hardly be seen
so ordinary it could be tossed away
so little as to be insignificant
we do not want a faith like a mustard seed
but rather a great and grand and visible faith
the kind that people take notice of
our Lord knew about seeds and resurrections
that what you plant is a tomb from which new life grows
plant the seed
watch and see
Whenever a seed sprouts, it is an example of resurrection.
I Corinthians 15
3 I delivered to you that which I also received: that Christ
died for our sins, 4that He was buried, that He rose again the
third day, 5and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.
6After that He was seen by over five hundred at once. 7He was
seen by James, then by all the apostles. 8Then last of all He
was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.
9 I am the least of the apostles, and not worthy to be called an
apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10By the grace
of God I am what I am, and His grace to me was not in vain.
12Now how do some among you say there is no resurrection?
14 If Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your
faith is also empty. 20But Christ is risen from the dead, and
has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
22As in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.
35"How are the dead raised? With what body do they come?"
36Foolish one, what you sow is not made alive unless it dies.
37You do not sow the body that shall be, but mere grain--
perhaps wheat. 38But God gives it a body as He pleases.
39All flesh is not the same, there is one kind of flesh of men,
another flesh of animals, another of fish and another of birds.
40There are also celestial and terrestrial bodies; but the glory
of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
41There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and
another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another.
42So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown
in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. 43Sown in dishonor;
raised in glory. Sown in weakness; raised in power. 44 It is
sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.
50Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor
does corruption inherit incorruption. 51Behold, I tell you a
mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--
52in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
The trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed. 53For this corruptible must put on
incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54Then
shall be brought to pass the saying, "Death is swallowed up in
victory." 55"O Death, where is your sting?" 56The sting of
death is sin. 57But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58Therefore, be steadfast, always abounding in the work of the Lord. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
