Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:11


10:11 On whom the ends of the ages are come - The expression has great force. All things meet together, and come to a crisis, under the last, the gospel, dispensation; both benefits and dangers, punishments and rewards. It remains, that Christ come as an avenger and judge. And even these ends include various periods, succeeding each other.

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 10:11

  • We need to take this scripture to heart, because this is why it is in the scriptures. It matters how we live our daily lives as Christians. God hates complainers. I would not really know that without reading the book of Numbers. In Daniel I learn that our heavenly Father is a great and dreadful God. His love is unbelievably great, but His wrath is terrible. He is a consuming fire. To the antinomians I say this. We strive to walk in the Spirit, confess sins as they occur, are saved by grace alone, and walk by grace alone. This does not mean because I walk with the Lord, that there is no effort involved. We work out what the Lord works in by His grace. So when the day is done, we see clearly that all our struggles were done in God and He gets the glory. But we have choices every day. We must choose God 's will. To do that we must be in God 's word daily. After all, Christianity is a daily relationship with God.
