I invite you to turn in your Bible to 1 Corinthians 15 once again.  We’ve been in a study of this powerful chapter as it deals with the subject of the resurrection.  The exciting truth of Christianity is that it is a ‘resurrection’ faith.  It is a supernatural life that is dependent upon the resurrection life of Jesus in the believer.  It is what Colossians 1:27 says is ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory.’  And this is something that transcends the grave.  A Christian is to someone who is going to live forever.  Death is a defeated foe, the grave has been overwhelmed, and it is the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead that has secured this victory. We have already seen from this chapter how our gospel is a resurrection gospel, we live with a resurrection hope, and we have a resurrection guarantee.  As we come to verse 29, I want to show you how we also have what I refer to as resurrection incentives.  In other words, this truth of future resurrection has a very practical impact on how I currently live my life.  That God has promised us resurrection has a very powerful influence on our thinking and living.  This is what Paul is explaining to the Corinthians in these verses.
