1 Cor 15:54-55When 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?”
This fills life with life. You will not go down in defeat. No matter what happens in this life; the perceived victory or defeat, you end as a victor. Life is full of highs and lows, triumphs and losses but you in faith you will cross a finish line as one who completed the race. You retained your faith for salvation.
Do you see the edge you have? Keeping in mind the prize, you press on. Life is full now. This gives meaning to life and puts pain in its place. That pain, this life is temporal and will not be remembered but the victory leads to eternal glory. You have a lot to look forward to, and life has no lasting value aside from the future victory. Death is no longer defeat but a doorway to Heaven; your prize awaits you. Get happy!
