Oh Death, Where is Your Victory?

Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 5:17-21  

In 1 Corinthians 15:56, the Apostle Paul explains that the sting of death is sin and the power of sin is the law.  Jesus' death satisfied God's divine law to overcome the problem of sin and the condemnation of death.

All the sin of the world for all time was placed on the person of Jesus Christ at Calvary.  In His resurrection, He rose victorious over sin and death.  Death no longer has authority over us.

I encourage you to reflect on what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross.  He shares His resurrection victory with all who believe in Him.  This victory is a gift of grace: God forgives the sins of all who trust in Christ alone.

You don't have to be afraid of death because it has no power over you.  For those who trust in Christ, death is not the end - it is only the beginning.
