54 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55 “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:54-55, ESV)
Facing death can be a very scary ordeal to be sure. People can lose control of their bodily functions or lose their minds through near death experiences. When we have the promise of Christ waiting for us on the other side of death, it can take the fear and trauma out of that experience. We can then truly say, “O death, where is your sting?”
Prayer: Lord, you are life and hope. In you, I will not fear.
