“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?

“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 15:55-57 NIV

Our ultimate victory has come through Jesus Christ.  Through the death and resurrection of Jesus we have been set free from the curse of sin and death.  It was impossible to keep the law of God and the law was meant to reveal man’s need of a savior.  It was only Jesus who could perfectly keep the law and fulfill the law.  This is why Jesus said He did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill it.

Daily we must fix our hearts and minds upon Jesus Christ.  Daily we face challenges as we follow Christ.  It is through the challenges we face that the Lord produces within us the character and nature of who He is.
