Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:43


15:43 It is sown in dishonour - Shocking to those who loved it best, human nature in disgrace! It is raised in glory - Clothed with robes of light, fit for those whom the King of heaven delights to honour. It is sown in weakness - Deprived even of that feeble strength which it once enjoyed. It is raised in power - Endued with vigour, strength, and activity, such as we cannot now conceive.

1Co 15:43 Sown in dishonour. The dead body is repulsive, becomes offensive, and we bury it out of sight. Raised in glory. Has a glorious beauty. Sown in weakness. All its powers exhausted. Raised in power. Endowed with heavenly energy.
