Where, O death, is your victory?

“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

Through Jesus Christ we have the victory.  In Jesus we are set free and in Jesus we are a brand new creation.  The old has gone and the new has come.  We are set free from the curse of sin and death.  We are set free from the demands of the law.  Through Jesus we are simply able to draw near to the Father with confidence and know that nothing will separate us from His love and His grace.

It is important that we understand the truth of God’s word because the enemy will try to assault us with condemnation.  He will try to lie to us and tell us that God is angry with us.  But in Christ the enemy has no power or authority over us.  He is a defeated foe who merely has lie and deceptions.  As believers in Christ we need to not only understand the freedom we have, but we need to understand the authority we have.  Press on toward the high call in Christ Jesus and simply draw near with your whole heart.
