Message of the Day: Sin, Fear, and Death Have No More Power Over Us
“The sting of death is sin. And the power of sin is the law. But let us give thanks to God! He gives us the victory because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done.” (1 Corinthians 15:56-57, NIRV)
It was sin that brought us under death’s power – it was Adam’s sin that brought his death and ultimately ours. The law of God gives sin its power, for it reveals our sin and condemns us because of our sin. Victory over the condemnation for sin that the law brought and over death and the grave, has been accomplished through the death and resurrection of Christ.
All this he has done through his mere unmerited mercy, and eternal thanks are due to God for this unspeakable gift. He has given us the victory over sin, Satan, death, the grave, and hell. Death will have no more power over us. Sin, which makes death fearful and which uses the law to hold people in this state of fear, will be finally destroyed.
