Through his death on the cross, Jesus destroyed the power of death in our lives. Yes, we still have to die, but even that is merely the passage from one life into an even better one.
Death itself no longer has any hold on our life. When we put our trust in Him, we share in the life of the resurrection.
That’s why the Christian message is one of hope. It’s about living life. The power of death has been defeated so that we might live life in all its fulness.
