1Co 15v57 – Winning

What a feeling, seeing my wife’s name selected from thousands of entries in a lucky draw. And then the joy of receiving the prizes – a free meal and bottles of wine. What a feeling. But there was more – a free night’s accommodation. And then there was more. Watching our sports team beat their arch-rivals in their biggest victory ever. Winning is such an amazing feeling that we all love. It’s why watching sports is so popular. It’s why people are lured into gambling. However, even the wins we enjoy, as incredible as they are, are temporary. Eventually, our sports team will lose. Ultimately, our winning gifts will be gone. But then there is more. More than anything else. A victory greater than any other. “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.” (1 Corinthians 15:54-57). Jesus is coming. Death will be defeated. And that will be the ultimate winning feeling. Open Bible – http://bit.ly/1Co15v54-58, http://bit.ly/READMore_
