All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.

First Corinthians 15 could well be titled “The Super Good News.” Paul introduced the message of this grand chapter by saying, “Now I would remind you, brothers and sisters, of the good news that I proclaimed to you” (1 Corinthians 15:1). It is the portion of the good news we want most to hear.The Book of Genesis gave us the bad news: Because of our sin, we live under a death sentence. It is a universal sentence, covering all ages, all races and ethnic groups, all levels of education and wealth. We humans know we are under a death sentence. We do not need a theologian to convince us; the reality is inescapable. In our Bible Lesson, however, Paul gives us the super good news that a resurrection is in our future. The death sentence has been overcome!
