If the Resurrection is not real: (v. 29-32)
- There is no gain in suffering for Jesus & Suffering is to be avoided at all costs.
- Sin is to be enjoyed.
BUT!!! Since The Resurrection is real (v. 33-34a)
- There is gain in suffering for Jesus & Suffering for Jesus is not to be avoided
- Sin must be eradicated in your life.
Why Does This Matter? – Some have no knowledge of God. (v. 34b)
- Remember: Your labor is not in vain (v. 58)
