The Enemy Death

If Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! … The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. … The sting of death is sin … but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:26,56-57 NKJV)

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.” (John 11:25-26 NKJV)

If Christ is not risen … if in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are all men the most pitiable. But now Christ is risen from the dead.
(1 Corinthians 15:14,19-20 NKJV)

Perhaps the only reliable statistic is that 10 out of 10 people die. Everyone faces the enemy Death, because everyone sins, and the wages—the payment—for sin is Death.

The God whose name is “I AM” is the only power to trump Death. Those who believe in Jesus live in Him and evade death's sting of sin. The choice to live each day, each moment in Christ is a choice to have true life now, and keep it for eternity. For us, the enemy Death is already defeated.

Lord YHWH, the great I AM, in You is all life. You are greater than all our enemies. The life You give fulfills our deepest needs. Please help us to choose Your life in all we do.

"Whoever be our people here, God's people or the devil's, death will gather our souls to them." C.H. Spurgeon
