A radio ad for a seminar sounded interesting. The announcer said, “You can beat death- for good, I’ll show you how.” That’s quite a claim, isn’t it? I’m sure many would be interested to attend a seminar on that subject. But you know, it turns out the announcer actually said “debt,” not “death.” That made much more sense! But it got me thinking- Jesus beat death, by paying our debt. Isn’t that amazing?
We all owe a debt for our sin. But Jesus paid it through His death on the cross. And so Jesus is the only one who can truly say He has beaten death! And through Jesus, we too can experience life eternal. It’s one of the most amazing truths of the Christian faith.
In First Corinthians St Paul says, “O death, where is your sting?” Paul continues in Second Corinthians saying, “the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself… Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.” Beating death is possible, but only through Jesus Christ. Whom will you share this incredible news with today?
When we walk with Christ, there is a daily battle to fight the temptations of the enemy. This week on Reaching Your World with Luis Palau learn how to overcome temptation. We do have many weapons we can use against sin. We may feel weak when it comes to temptation but Jesus says the Spirit is willing.
