3/28/13 Daily Devotion

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

When a loved one passes, we are stung by their loss. They had an effect upon our lives, so it makes sense that their absence would bring hardship. But for those who live for Christ, this is but momentary, for death sees no victory. Christians mourn losses just as everyone else does, but with one major difference. For the Christian, death is not the end. For the Christian, it is the beginning of a glorious eternity within the presence of Jesus. For the Christian, death brings a sting to those we leave behind. But for us, it brings us into the reward we have been working towards.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, I know that death brings pain, but it also brings us into Your presence. Help prepare me for that moment when I cross from this world into the eternal.

  1. For Believers, the sting that the death of our loved ones leave behind but it only makes our heavenly reunion all the more sweeter! Thanks Dr. Jeff
