121 Days of Prayer

Gracious Lord, Paul succinctly explained to the Corinthians how and why it came about that they were in need of salvation, writing, “The fact is that Christ did actually rise from the dead, and has become the first of millions who will come back to life again some day. Death came into the world because of what one man (Adam) did, and it is because of what the other man (Christ) has done that now there is the resurrection from the dead. Everyone dies because all of us are related to Adam, being members of his sinful race, and wherever there is sin, death results. But all who are related to Christ will rise again. Each, however, in his own turn: Christ rose first, then when Christ comes back, all his people will become alive again. After that, the end will come when he will turn the kingdom over to God the Father, having put down enemies of every kind. For Christ will be king until he has defeated all his enemies, including the last enemy- death. This too must be defeated and ended.” 1 Corinthians 15:20–26 (TLB). Heavenly Father, thank you for the salvation we receive through our faith in your Son, Jesus. Help us to maintain our faith, no matter what trials we have yet to overcome, until the end. Amen.
