“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. - 1 Corinthians 15:55-56
On Sunday I witnessed five teens from our youth group publicly proclaim their faith by being baptized. They each gave their testimony and described their walk with God.
One of them shared that before becoming a Christian, he’d had terrible anxiety about dying. It was a fear of the unknown. What was going to happen to him? What comes after death?
But he no longer has those fears. He’s given his life to Christ, and knows that because Jesus gave up His life for us on the cross, our sins are forgiven. Death no longer scares him, because he knows he will spend eternity with God in heaven!
“Death has been swallowed up in victory.” - 1 Corinthians 15:54
