What Difference Does it Make? (1 Corinthians 15)

I. THE RESURRECTION SHOWS GOD’S GREAT POWER

II. THE RESURRECTION ELEVATES OUR FUTURE HOPE

Job 13:7 Will you speak what is unjust for God, And speak what is deceitful for Him?

Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

1 Thessalonians 4:13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.

Should You Go First
Albert Kennedy Rowswell

Should you go first, and I remain
To walk the road alone,
I’ll live in memory’s garden, dear,
With the happy days we’ve known.

In spring, I’ll wait for the roses red,
In summer, lilacs blue;
In autumn, when the brown leaves fall,
I’ll catch a breath of you.

Should you go first, and I remain
For battles to be fought,
Each thing you’ve touched along the way
Will be a hallowed spot.

I’ll hear your voice, I’ll see your smile
Though blindly I may grope;
The memory of your loving hand
Will buoy me on with hope.

Should you go first, and I remain
To finish with the scroll?
No dark shadows shall creep in
To make this life seem droll.

We’ve known so much of happiness,
We’ve had our cup of joy;
The memory is one gift of God
That death cannot destroy.

Should you go first, and I remain,
One thing I’d have you know,
Walk slowly down the path of death,
For soon, I’ll follow you.

I’ll want to know each step you take,
That I may walk the same,
For some day, down that lonely road,
You’ll hear me call your name.

Should you go first, and I remain,
One thing for sure we know;
We’ll meet again in that bright land
Beyond the golden shore;

God’s great salvation we’ve received
Through Jesus’ matchless Name,
And there in Heaven united be,
We’ll never part again!
