1 Corinthians 15:20-22
...Now is Christ rose from the dead, and became the firstfruit of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
What is our text saying to us? It is saying that all who are in Christ and when this earthly tabernacle is over will live again because He rose from the dead with all power; therefore, He became the firstfruit of the dead. This also mean that all believers' resurrection is assured in Christ, because as He live so shall we.
Our scripture text is also saying that Christ is alive and all believers are alive in Christ as He is the essence of our being from the beginning unto the end. Believers, we serve a risen Savior; therefore, serve Him with all reverence, glory and honor. It is in Christ that we have our being as Christ is the first of everything. That said all believers died and rose with Christ and is assured of being in the wheat harvest who will reign with Christ in the New Jerusalem.
Being alive in Christ; believers are sons and daughter of God and members of His holy nation of peculiar people. Being alive is Christ; believers are co-heirs with Christ and will share in the blessings God has stowed up for us.
Just as Christ is alive so are we.
