Victory through Lord Jesus

Victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:57 NIV

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 ESV

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, a warm welcome and good wishes for you!

The verse just prior to the above verse i.e, 1 Corinthians 15:56 says:

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

It is very clear from the verse that the sting of death is sin. Added to that is the law which is the power for sin. Keeping the laws of God are good. Honestly, could we keep all the laws of God and stay sinless? We know that man is sinful in nature. Is man able to keep all the commandments of God? As the Bible says in James 3:2, we all stumble in many ways:

We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.

As it is said, those who live by the law will die by the law. And we all stumble and can never keep our bodies in check. There is none who can keep all the laws and be justified by God. As the Scripture in Galatians 3:11 says:

Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.

It is clearly evident that only by faith we are justified and not by keeping the law. By keeping the laws alone there is constant fear which is akin to living at the edge of sword. Take heart, for we have a way that God constituted for us. It is by accepting Jesus as our Lord and washing our sins by the blood He shed for us. And living a righteous life by faith in Jesus Christ gives us the victory over the death. Therefore, thank the almighty God for His wondrous plan of Salvation for all of us. Amen.
