2 Corinthians 5:1-11

If you have been around CCF for any length of time, you know that I often engage people in conversation by asking, “What do you think happens when you die?” Now most people will want to talk about almost anything else—largely because people spend most of their waking hours trying not to think about their…

1 Corinthians 15:50-58

As we finish 1st Corinthians chapter 15, Paul brings his discussion of resurrection to a victorious crescendo and climax! Death and the grave do not have the last word! Like a lion with no teeth, a snake with no venom, or a bee with no sting, death has been stripped of its power and the…

Easter 2019: 1 Cor 15:35-49

Easter Sunday 2019 celebration! We’ve prepared for this Sunday by diving deeply into the “Resurrection chapter” of 1st Corinthians 15 for the last several weeks. Today we celebrate the resurrected savior and continue our study in this rich and important chapter to our faith!

1 Corinthians 15:20-34

On this Palm Sunday we continue in our study of 1st Corinthians 15 – The Resurrection chapter – with Part III in our series. As we would expect, this next section is packed with essential truth. How we think and how we understand really does dictate how we live. Our true theology is evident in…

1 corinthians 15:12-19

You have heard it said that some things are a “matter of life and death”. All month, as we discuss resurrection, we will be discussing life and death. At the end of the day, when the smoke clears and people stop long enough to turn off the stimulus and think, it all boils down to…

Paul picks up a super-important (and timely) topic as we enter 1st Corinthians 15: resurrection! This is a long chapter, and will take us right up to Easter, so we will be well prepared by the time we gather for Resurrection Sunday. The Corinthian issues with bodily resurrection, and the fact that Paul had to…

Romans 8:1-11

We are now entering Romans 8, which is just a continuation of what the apostle Paul has been discussing in Chapter 7: we are in the “Power Plant” — where we discover the power source for living the Christian life! We know it is in not in our own power to live a life pleasing…

Romans 6:1-14

Leaving the courtroom, we are now entering the “power plant” at the beginning of Romans chapter six. Paul starts by answering a question that might immediately surface after we learn God’s grace overflows where sin abounds: well then, why not sin so that grace might “super-abound!?” But, the truth is that we are in a…

Romans 6:1-11 (Easter Sunday 2016)

Romans 6 may not be a traditional “Easter Sunday” passage, but it is a powerful image of our being “united with”, “joined to”, or even “conjoined to” Christ in his death, resurrection, and glorification! It is both a mystery but a powerful truth when we realize that we are joined with Him, and that we…
