"The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord," (I Corinthians 15:56--58).
* With no hope beyond the inevitability of death, the world is pervaded with a sense of futility. Only through salvation in the Lord Jesus is victory over the grave assured, and purpose in life enjoyed.
Each day of our lives should be gratefully lived in the light of our certain eternal destiny with the Lord Jesus.
