1 Corinthians 15: Don't Lose Sight

Unless you believe as the demons do, only in the facts of the gospels and have no true love for Christ, in which case you truly are not saved. But if you do have a love relationship with Christ and are being saved and are living for Him, then remember this: vs 3”Christ dies for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, that He was buried, that He was dead for three days, that He was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures....”. Be on watch. Do not lose your focus. Paul warns the Corinthians of this very thing. They knew the gospel message! They had Paul himself teaching them, and yet they got distracted. Don’t we all? They allowed division and debate to ruin the one thing Christ was teaching, the one most important thing - LOVE. And in all that they lost focus. They quote (and I bet you didn’t know this was scripture 😉) directly from Isaiah in vs 32 when they say “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” 🤦🏼‍♀️. But Paul goes on to remind them in 33-34 “Do not be deceived: ‘Bad company ruins good morals’. Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on sinning. For some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.”

We are called as Christ followers to LOVE, to be Christ’s representatives on this earth. He has risen and will come again. We have work to do and we are NOT to align ourselves with the ways of this world. Shame on us if we do, we then are hindering the non believers from knowing and thus being saved. Set the example, be the example. And do all these things in love.
