September 18 | 1 Corinthians 15:50-58


Breath Prayer – Take 2-3 minutes today to pray a simple breath prayer. Get somewhere quiet and relaxing. Breathe in deeply, and then breathe out fully. As you breathe in, ask God to fill you with His presence, grace, love, peace, etc. Consider using the list of spiritual fruit in Galatians 5:22-23. As you breathe out, offer to God the things you need Him to take from you – sin, doubt, shame, anxiety, fear, etc. Pray this way for just a few minutes, trusting God to work, and then begin reading today’s Scripture.

Behold: Mystery and Victory

by Mary Alice McGinnis

"Behold!" (1 Corinthians 15:51 (ESV)) What does that word mean to you? In today’s reading, Paul tells his readers (including us) BEHOLD!

It’s more than just LOOK. It is more like a command to take notice, to see, observe, to pay attention! He is saying, “Listen up, what I am about to tell you is of utmost importance!”

What was it that Paul found so important?

Through the prompting of the Holy Spirit’s Divine inspiration, Paul says: “I tell you a mystery!”

Earlier in letter to the Corinthians, he says, “But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory.” 1 Corinthians 2:7

The mystery Paul is speaking about is not something they could come to know or understand with their own intellectual prowess. No amount of human searching would ever be able to unveil this mystery. This secret mystery of God can only be comprehended by those whom God chooses to reveal it to.

Let’s try to picture what Paul describes with our mind’s eye.

“We will not all sleep, but we shall all be changed!” (1 Corinthians 15:51 (ESV))
