Capon: to raise the dead

Friday, May 29, 2015
    By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.
    —1 Corinthians 6:14 (NIV)
    Jesus came to raise the dead. Not to repair the repairable, correct the correctable, or improve the improvable. Just to raise the dead, and nobody but the dead. Nothing is all he needs for anything.
    ... Robert Farrar Capon (1925-2013), The Foolishness of Preaching, Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1997, p. 25 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 6:14; Isa. 26:19; Dan. 12:2; Luke 14:14; John 5:21,25,28-29; 6:40,54; Rom. 6:4; 8:11; Eph. 5:13-14; 1 Thess. 4:14-16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I was dead, and through Your grace and power now I live.
