Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

1 Corinthians 15:50-57 NLT
What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever. But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies. Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? ” For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Reflection . . .

For those who believe in Jesus Christ, we will not all die, but we will all be transformed! God gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ!

Psalm 118:14-24 NLT
[14] The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory.

[15] Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly.

The strong right arm of the LORD has done glorious things!

[16] The strong right arm of the LORD is raised in triumph.

The strong right arm of the LORD has done glorious things!

[17] I will not die; instead, I will live to tell what the LORD has done.

[18] The LORD has punished me severely, but he did not let me die.

[19] Open for me the gates where the righteous enter,

and I will go in and thank the LORD.

[20] These gates lead to the presence of the LORD, and the godly enter there.

[21] I thank you for answering my prayer and giving me victory!

[22] The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.

[23] This is the LORD’s doing, and it is wonderful to see.

[24] This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
