Victory

HE IS RISEN!  And it is that very resurrection that defeated Jesus final enemy - death!  And it is this defeat that gives us hope, and for those who place their trust in him - the very same victory!

Death is simply a birth into his presence for eternity. Death has no more sting for his followers.  Won't you trust him?


1 Corinthians 15: 51-58

But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed!  It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed.  For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.
  Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.
  O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting”
  For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power.  But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
 So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.
