Resurrection as Protest
(Rev. Kevin Vandiver)
“No matter how bleak it gets the powers of evil will not win. That’s why the Apostle Paul can ask, ‘O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory?’ Because Jesus has conquered them both and through bodily protest witnessed on an early Easter morning has defied and nullified their power.”
How have you seen the power of death and the grave defied and nullified in your life and the world around you?
1 Corinthians 15:55-57
“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, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
