Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:26


15:26 The last enemy that is destroyed is death - Namely, after Satan, #Heb 2:14|, and sin, #1Cor 15:56|, are destroyed. In the same order they prevailed. Satan brought in sin, and sin brought forth death. And Christ, when he of old engaged with these enemies, first conquered Satan, then sin, in his death; and, lastly, death, in his resurrection. In the same order he delivers all the faithful from them, yea, and destroys these enemies themselves. Death he so destroys that it shall be no more; sin and Satan, so that they shall no more hurt his people.

  • Jonathan
    I sometimes get carried away in the world and before I turned back to God it was easy to labour in a worldly way sinning and not loving my neighbour, we must always strive to labour in the Lord for most worldly labour is vanity where as labour in the Lord is everlasting. Think of the labour of love God did for us when he took up the cross for our sins, fasting for 40 days and nights healing and loving each and everyone of us hallelujah Praise the Lord in Jesus name Amen.
