Where, O Death, Is Your Victory? Where, O Death, Is Your Sting?

That passage, 1 Corinthians 15:55, rips me to my core & I face so many emotions every time I hear or read it.

Already almost six months ago, Jess passed away & took a piece of my heart with her. Ever since that afternoon my faith has been shaky & Satan has won a lot of my battles. It took me over a month to recognize that God did not intend for death to happen, but humans came into the world & sin occurred. I was so confused as to why God would let this happen to such a loving girl & a family with such a deep faith in Him. What I had come to believe over time was that Jess had conquered God’s mission here on earth a lot quicker than all of us. She is sitting up in heaven worshiping her Savior & waiting for the day we all get to join her. Praise God!

So far, death has won every battle; the sin curse is reigning, but one day all those who have gone before us will be raised like Jesus was. Jesus conquered the sin-curse & conquered death by His resurrection.

One day, we will be able to look at that body in the casket & say ‘o death, where is your sting?’ We will be in victory.
