In our world, some of the greatest icons of success would come from various companies like Amazon and Nike, various sports teams like The New York Yankees and the New England Patriot, various designer labels and the like. Paul names the greatest icon of success that he can think of in 1 Corinthians 1: the cross. Strange. How can you be “killing it”, when you are yourself killed? By rising from the dead. That’s how.
