Cristo ha Resucitado!

As I reflect on Jesus death and resurrection this Easter, and it's lasting impact on my own death, I find myself uttering Paul's own words with a heightened sense of understanding and clarity. Gazing at my own grave, starting death in the eye with complete God given confidence and authority...
"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 5:55-56)
Death has been swallowed up in victory, indeed!
