“We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed … the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable […] The sting of death is sin … but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”—1 Corinthians 15:51–52, 56–57

To many people the resurrection of Jesus is just a story. But for Christians it is the ultimate expression of God’s power at work. For those who hope only in this life, death is the ultimate sadness, something to be feared. It means the end. It means no more hope or joy, no more pleasure. Our natural minds accept these limits because they only draw on their own finite understanding. The devil desires to spread the fear and discouragement of death. He wants us to assume its finality and give up. He wants us to believe that God cannot do the impossible. But the Bible reminds us of the importance of grasping the power of the resurrection and its practical significance. God wants us to see that He already has shattered every barrier! Death has no more sting! As the resurrection proves, all things are possible! There are no limits! We can have hope! Do not accept defeat or give in to hopelessness. Praise God that Jesus rose from the dead! He can solve even your most unsolvable problems and conquer your most overwhelming obstacles. Now and in eternity, He has given you “the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!”

Reflection Question: Reflect on the importance of Jesus’ resurrection in your life.
