When 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.”
“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.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Every year on the Sunday after Easter, our church celebrates Life After Death Sunday.
It's a time to remember those in our congregation who have died in the past year, and a time to remember that death doesn't have the final say.
This year, it was hard to see Dave Aldridge's name among those being remembered. In this world, death still stings. I'm so thankful that this world is only the shadowlands, and the rest of the story is better than we can imagine.
Since we're still dwelling on Easter's resurrection power, I'll post those Easter photos I promised.
I'm in love...
