Today's Verse: 1 Corinthians 15:55

Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?
— 1 Corinthians 15:55

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Death has the power to end life. Death has the power to separate. Death has the power to discourage and defeat us. But, we know the truth; Jesus lives! Because he lives, we know we will live with him. We believe that his victory over death is our victory. So like Jesus, we mock death and its power to destroy us. Jesus has destroyed death and brought immortality to life... in us through the Gospel.

My Prayer...

Father, I confess that the death of those I love still hurts me. I thank you that my separation from them will only be for a short time. I thank you, however, that death doesn't separate me for long from those I love and who love you. Thank you for giving me the victory in Jesus. Thank you Jesus for defeating death. In your precious and triumphant name, Jesus Christ the Lord, I pray. Amen.
