Apart from Christ, there wouldn't be wisdom.
All our morality are tainted with sin.
A vain display of self righteousness.
Self glorification is evil.
Vain glory is evil.
Who would take this evil from us?
Who can we give our praise to if Christ is not our motivator for our good works?
Like the choicest fat, we must not eat of it but it should be reserved for God.
All praise should go to God.
Or it will render us a greater sinner for performing the good act than not performing it at all.
It would be better not to perform the good act if our motivation to perform it was not from Christ.
Oh Lord, to You be the glory!
To You be the glory or we will die!
If Christ has not resurrected.
Let's Eat, sleep and be merry for tomorrow we die.
1 Corinthians 15:32 NLT
And what value was there in fighting wild beasts—those people of Ephesus —if there will be no resurrection from the dead? And if there is no resurrection, “Let’s feast and drink, for tomorrow we die!”
Everything is meaningless apart from Christ.
