1 Corinthians 15:55-57
“‘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.”
He came down from heaven to win the war for us.
Jesus Christ, born of Mary, the incarnate Son of the Heavenly Father, took the field for us and defeated the enemies of God and His people. He did it willingly so we could be brought back into the family of God. And when our enemies thought they defeated Him when they killed Him on the Roman cross, Jesus walks from three days later from the tomb.
The empty tomb symbolizes the great victory Jesus won for us.
Death no longer has control over us. Jesus victoriously walked free since death’s grip was overcome when He rose from the dead.
The victory over death is our victory, imparted to us because our Lord wants us to be with Him forever. He did it all on our behalf so we can stand as victors over death, sin, and Satan and gain eternity with our God. Jesus won the war for us.
It is a great feeling to know that our God has done this all for us and has given us the fruits of His victory. Though we may feel like we don’t deserve it, He gave it to us any way because our God loves us.
As we go through this time of immeasurable struggles with the coronavirus and see so many people lose their lives, we know that our redeemer lives and that all of God’s people will stand with Him for eternity. Though we cry today, our tears are wiped away by our Savior who redeemed us from eternal death.
