Our Resurrection Body

by Linda Sasso

As we continue to examine the Apostle Paul’s explanation for the resurrection of our bodies he brings further insight through analogies. Read an excerpt of today’s text in the New Living Translation… But someone may ask, “How will the dead be raised? What kind of bodies will they have?” What a foolish question! When you […]

Death Itself Will One Day be Destroyed

by Linda Sasso

Sometimes it’s helpful to read the scriptures from a different translation. Today I have chosen to post our text from the Phillip’s Translation of the New Testament…  “20 But the glorious fact is that Christ was raised from the dead: he has become the very first to rise of all who sleep the sleep of […]

A Humble Faith

by Linda Sasso

Today’s text contains two important components of Christianity. 1. The importance of a humble heart. and 2. The essential doctrine of the resurrection of Christ and eventually, Christ’s followers.  Read the Apostle Paul’s dissertation in the New Living Translation and allow God to speak to your heart… For I am the least of all the […]

He is Risen

by Linda Sasso

“Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you–unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also […]

Fulfilled Prophecy on Palm Sunday

by Linda Sasso

Today we will look at a powerful reality of fulfilled prophecy from the prophet Daniel who predicted the history of the world over 600 years before Christ. We will study this prophecy in depth this morning. Today’s text can be deep and complicated. So as to break it down more simply let’s look at the […]

Instructions for Using Your Spiritual Gifts

by Linda Sasso

Many people don’t realize that when God gives you a spiritual gift it is not really for you. It is for those around you. Spiritual gifts should be used to bless everyone around you in the fellowship. Every spiritual gift should be motivated by and result in love and building up one another. Spiritual gifts come […]

The Confusion Over Speaking in Tongues

by Linda Sasso

I truly believe that if more people simply studied their bibles there would be a lot less confusion over the spiritual gifts and particularly the gift of tongues. The “Ceaseationists” (those who believe that the spiritual gifts like prophecy and tongues have ceased) Just might take a new stand if they carefully read 1Corinthians chapters […]

Let Love Reign

by Linda Sasso

As you read over today’s text remember what we have learned in chapter 13 about the supremacy and importance of love. Everything we do should be motivated by love. Paul’s whole point in chapter fourteen is that we must be ruled by love if we are to exercise spiritual gifts. Many churches abuse spiritual gifts […]

Love is Eternal

by Linda Sasso

In today’s text, the Apostle Paul pronounces the importance of love over and above the spiritual gifts. He uses two illustrations to show that someday when we are made complete in heaven, when we see Jesus face to face, we will no longer need the spiritual gifts.  … when the time of perfection comes, these […]

The More Excellent Way

by Linda Sasso

In 1Corinthians 12 the Apostle Paul took some time to point out some of the spiritual gifts as he was lecturing the Corinthian Christians about spiritual life. But at the end of chapter 12 he says, “Yet, I show you a more excellent way“. That more excellent way is the way of God’s love towards […]
