In this passage from 1 Corinthians 15, Paul continues to argue for the truth and importance of the resurrection. He reminds the Corinthians that without the resurrection many of their actions, including the willingness to suffer for Christ, would be pointless. As believers, if our motivation is not the gospel and the hope of the resurrection, we are not likely to persevere through trials. Our lives are a reflection of what we believe. Do we see evidence that the gospel is what motivates our actions?
