1 Corinthians 15:54-57

What a week! We had two visitations and three funerals in six days. I am tired, tired, tired.
I finished 1 Corinthians this week, and a passage from chapter 15 really gave me comfort.

54When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory."
55"Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?" 56The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

With our business, and especially this week, I probably think about death more than most people. I am so grateful that as believers we can face death and know that it is not the final chapter. The grave is swallowed up in victory!
