“O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:55-57
Jesus is victorious!
Sin, the sting of death, was paid for. Jesus paid the price of your sins and my sins, death on the cross. He took the sins of the world upon Himself. He took the shame and guilt of the world’s wrong-doing upon His perfection and died a death that you and I deserve. He was buried in a borrowed tomb.
Three days later, God raised Jesus from the dead to walk, teach, eat, and fellowship with His disciples and followers.
Sin and death conquered!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Jesus is the resurrection
and the life.
Father, thank You for Your great love, for Jesus, for His great sacrifice, for the forgiveness of sin, and for His victory over sin and death. We pray for all who are suffering today. We pray for all who do not know You, and we ask for a great awakening to the reality of Your amazing love. Reveal Yourself to the world in an unmistakeable way, so that they humbly come to You, ask for forgiveness, and give their lives to You. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
