Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:10


15:10 I laboured more than they all - That is, more than any of them, from a deep sense of the peculiar love God had shown me. Yet, to speak more properly, it is not I, but the grace of God that is with me - This it is which at first qualified me for the work, and still excites me to zeal and diligence in it.

1Co 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am. Not by his own merit, which he considered so small, but by God's grace he had been enabled to do a more abundant work than any other apostle.

    THIS BIBLE PASSAGE REALLY SPOKE TO MY HEART. ESPECIALLY VERSE 58 WHICH says " THEREFORE MY BELOVED BRETHREN, BE YE STEDFAST, UNMOVABLE, ALWAYS ABOUNDING IN THE WORK OF THE LORD, FOR AS MUCH AS YE KNOW THAT YOUR LABOUR IS NOT IN VAIN IN THE LORD". THAT CHRIST WILL INCREASE OUR FAITH AND THAT BY DOING HIS WILL NOT ONLY BE SAFE, ALSO JOYOUS AND TRIUMPHANT. PRAISE BE TO THE KING OF GLORY AMEN.

    That means that we have the victory through conquering

    Jesus defeated sin which leads to spiritual and natural death at the cross. Now they do not have dominion over us because I am no longer under the law but under grace
  • Nicholas Palmer
    Baptism is by works....undermining the Cross for all works have been nailed to it including the law which gives sin power...faith plus nothing..
