Daily Devotional – Our Righteousness Speaks to God’s Glory

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from 1 Corinthians 15:26-34. How else will the world truly be convinced of God’s majesty? They will be convinced through the continuous love and works undertaken by the body of Christ!

“The last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For he “has put everything under his feet.”[c] Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. 28 When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.

29 Now if there is no resurrection, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized for them? 30 And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour? 31 I face death every day—yes, just as surely as I boast about you in Christ Jesus our Lord. 32 If I fought wild beasts in Ephesus with no more than human hopes, what have I gained? If the dead are not raised,

“Let us eat and drink,
    for tomorrow we die.”[d]

33 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”[e] 34 Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God—I say this to your shame.”

How can we sin against the one we love?

There is always the discussion about righteousness and sanctification. Why do we as the body of Christ argue and fight between us about doctrines? These actions only distract us and the world from our God and Father.

Before this scripture, Paul speaks about the fruit of the Holy Spirit. God will spring forth and grow His fruit in our lives if we allow Him to do it. God will bring forth life and love in our lives if we truly open ourselves for Him to do it.

The honest question that we need to ask ourselves is, do I truly love God? We wouldn’t deliberately sin and cause harm to our spouse, then how can we justify to sin against God? The question is not about doctrine, rather about love. Our righteous living will not only bring joy to our God, but it will show the world a God worthy of love and glory!

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

Thank you that You have already done everything for me and all of us. All that we need to do is reciprocate and show You our thankfulness and gratitude. I love You and choose You ver the pleasures of sin!

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen
