Day 6

Grace Day

from the Revelation reading plan


1 Corinthians 15:54-57

BY She Reads Truth

Use this day to pray, rest, and reflect on this week’s reading, giving thanks for the grace that is ours in Christ.

When this corruptible body is clothed with incorruptibility, and this mortal body is clothed with immortality, then the saying that is written will take place:

Death has been swallowed up in victory.
Where, death, is your victory?
Where, death, is your sting?

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
—1 Corinthians 15:54–57

    I have spent the last couple of days of this study feeling very confused! But with my good intentions of trying to wrap my head around all the symbolism and the myriad of opinions and interrogations, I missed the point. Today I read the helpful devotion in the SRT Bible…

    “The 144,000 aren’t the point, nor are the creatures around the throne or all the believers clad in white. The Gospel is the point. Salvation comes through Christ alone. Even in heaven, in the throne room of God, this is the sermon being preached. With the Gospel in the foreground, the backstory suddenly makes sense. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross on our behalf, because of the gospel, this happens: “these are the ones comes out of the great tribulation. They washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb”. Our rags, polluted by our sin have been bleached pure by Christ’s sacrifice. Though we were cast out of God’s presence by our rebellion, we are welcome in the throne room, reconciled through Christ.”

    Hallelujah!

    Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith

    Praying for your and your family, Kathy. Praying that you all recall wonderful memories and that you find great peace knowing you will see her again.

    And Shawn, yes! I too love having my devotional time outdoors. There’s something about being quiet and surrounded by His creation that draws me to His majesty and power.

    These verses today put sin and death in their proper place. And life in this world and life in eternity in right perspective. I will spend far more time in one than the other: may my focus be on that one.

    My mom passed away this past February. Today my family is gathering to bury her ashes. There is much comfort in these verses today. God is very good and very timely. I am so glad that she is with Jesus and that she is healthy and whole, but I miss her every day.
    Please pray for us as we gather today. It will be a very bittersweet time.

      Praying for you and your family now, Kathy! Asking for a wave of peace that surpasses all understanding to cradle you and your loved ones through this journey of letting go. It is only temporary.

    4. Heather Leong says:

      Praying for you, Kathy, on this difficult day. May you be overwhelmed by God’s presence and comfort.

    5. Beth Allen says:

      Hello Kathy. I’ll be praying for you today. My Mum passed away just over 5 years ago. I remember my husband using a C. S. Lewis quote, saying her death was a severe mercy. Like you say, she’s no longer suffering and she is with Jesus, but it’s still painful for us to bear. May you know Jesus right beside you today. Prayers, Beth

    I love to wake up very early in the morning and read the scripture and pray. The sun rises on a new day—it is at this time, these early morning moments when the day is perfect, peaceful, full of purpose and promise. I am in the Lord’s presence and I feel the power of His spirit. My heart sings His praises in unison with the angels! These moments are incorruptible and immortal. I cherish this part of the day and wish it would last forever—but He reminds me that it will! “For a little while” I will walk and work and live in the corruption of this world and I will be reminded of the mortality all around me. But because I am a redeemed child of the living God, this corruption and mortality have no hold on me! I am held tightly in the loving, saving grip of my Lord and my God! I treasure the early hour of the day! This is merely a glorious glimpse of what forever will be like. My Lord, what a morning when the Son begins to shine!

    1. Gina Glennon says:

      Yes, yes, yes! Exactly. My heart rejoices in the joy of these early morning communions!

    Thank you Jesus for your word…..even when I struggle to understand all of the symbolism I do know for sure you died for me to save me from sin and everlasting death. Your love and grace is overwhelming at times. I am humbled by your mercy. Help me not to miss opportunities to share you.
