A Death Defying Love

Posted by Kevin Cooper on

O Death, where is your sting? Where is your victory? In resurrection I will not fear you! O death, you died and I'm alive instead! 

I heard these lyrics this morning and it made me think...Are you excited today? Do you know what Christ did for you? We have been given eternal life, which is God; it is to know Him... and that life begins now! 

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose.

This day...let's not cancel out what Christ did by trying to earn our spot with God. He said, it is finished! Christ has accomplished it! Sweet Victory is ours. 

What are you living for? What is your eternity? What about those around you?

Well, as you can tell I am pumped about our God today. You know why? Because He spoke to me. He said, "His mercies are new every morning" and I can't help but respond with "Praise the Lord!" I know each one of us struggles. I know there are what seems like more days of rebellion than obedience. I know we don't have it all together as it might appear. But Praise the Lord, His mercy is more! 

Let's encourage one another today with the reality of grace in our lives. Like Paul, we can say, "Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3

O death, you died and I'm alive instead! Let's live like it today
