Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:51


15:51 A mystery - A truth hitherto unknown; and not yet fully known to any of the sons of men. We - Christians. The Apostle considers them all as one, in their succeeding generations. Shall not all die - Suffer a separation of soul and body. But we shall all - Who do not die, be changed - So that this animal body shall become spiritual.

    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.

    First , I think I should look at what God is saying in that : Forasmuch as I know : I do not believe that God expects me to be doing a thing that I know nothing about : Only in what I know , not what I do not know : Then God says for me to be stedfast , unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord : I also believe that as I am working in what I know ,I will learn more on what to do . I am not to expect a reward from man. My reward is laid up in heaven , I also believe that I get rewarded here in the things I do for my Lord.
