“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“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 15:54b-57
Sin brought death into the world. Death is Satan’s attempt at power over the world. But Satan doesn’t have the final victory. Death—something that so many of us might fear—something that seems so permanent and final and dark…it isn’t the end.
Just when Satan thought that he had won, Jesus totally showed him up. He came back to life and gave us hope through His resurrection. Jesus’ death put to death our sins, and His resurrection gives us the hope of eternal life with God in heaven.
When the disciples learned that Jesus was alive, they were overjoyed and wanted to spread the news of His life everywhere. That’s something so important to remember this Easter…we have this incredible news…this incredible life to celebrate…Jesus bringing light into the world. And it’s our job to spread that light, just like the disciples did.
