The sting of death remains…



1 Corinthians 15: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” 55 “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”

I need to remember that when the bible says “Death has been swallowed up in victory”, it doesn’t mean we no longer suffer the effects of mortality or endure the pain and loss at the death of a loved-one. From my perspective death still stings.

But Jesus’ resurrection from the dead means that death no longer has the last word. We will be raised on the last day along with our loved ones. We may lose them for a while, but it is only for a while. There is hope in that.
