Dying Daily (eBook)

"I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily." 1 Cor. 15:31

Three expositions on 1 Corinthians 15:31 (transcripts) which focus on the concept of daily preparing oneself to die, how to die well and being ready to meet God in all circumstances. A helpful consideration of what death ought to mean for a Christian; how we should face it, and what God accomplishes through the death of His saints. A great meditation on the transient nature of life, a perspective need in preparing our souls for our eternal rest in the presence of Christ at the resurrection. 

These words of Paul in the text have a great vehemency and emphasis in them, and discover an uncommon earnestness upon the spirit of the apostle when he wrote them; and indeed they carry a greater appearance of such a vehemency in the original than in our translation. For the words we put in the last place, "I die daily," are the first in the original: Καθʼ ἡμέραν ἀποθνήσκω, “I die daily;” Νὴ τὴν ὑμετέραν καὑχησιν, ἥν ἔχω ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ τῷ Κυρίῳ ἡμῶν, -- "Yea, I do so by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord." And there is no expression used by the apostle that hath a greater ardour of spirit in it than this hath.
