29 Or else what will they do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead aren’t raised at all, why then are they baptized for the dead? 30 Why do we also stand in jeopardy every hour? 31 I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. 32 If I fought with animals at Ephesus for human purposes, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, then “let’s eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” 33 Don’t be deceived! “Evil companionships corrupt good morals.” 34 Wake up righteously, and don’t sin, for some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.
(1 Corinthians 15:29-34 WEB)
Paul is pointing out if the dead are not raised there is no point in being baptized for them. He asks why we jeopardize ourselves if no one is raised. he boasts in Christ Jesus that he dies daily. He states there is no purpose to fighting with animals for human purposes if the dead are not raised. He states that we should eat and drink for we die tomorrow if the dead are not raised. Paul then points out that good morals are corrupted by wicked companions. He says to wake righteously and not to sin because it is shameful that some among them have no knowledge of God.
Heavenly Father, Here we learn that if there is no resurrection of the dead there is no point in jeopardizing ourselves. We are reminded that evil companions corrupt good morals and that we need to be righteous and not sin. Your word then tells us to seek the knowledge of God that we may become more righteous. I ask this in Jesus name, amen.
