Your New Resumé

Thursday of the Eleventh Week in Kingdomtide
1 Corinthians 15—16

Nick reads the one-minute introduction.

Chapter 15 teaches the intimate connection that exists between Christ’s resurrection and ours. One gets its meaning from the other. We are not to believe in the resurrection of Jesus as a reality for Jesus alone, apart from its impact upon the very nature of our own lives.

This chapter is a glorious new resumé about who you are in Christ Jesus. It expresses the very essence of your faith. The reading stands in contrast to any less worthy way that you see your life—worthiness not of your own doing, but rather of what Christ Jesus has recreated you to be in his own body.

As you prayerfully read this and the final chapter, the very familiar verses will take on a greater, inner illumination for your own nourishment. Give thanks to the Lord for this great letter—and for your new resumé!


Thursdays are dedicated to the New Testament, except the Gospels. During the season of Kingdomtide this year, we read 1 Corinthians.
