When this happens -- when our perishable earthly bodies have been transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die -- then at last the Scriptures will come true: "Death is swallowed up in victory. a55
O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?" b56
For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power.
How we thank God, who gives us victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ our Lord!
