“The Sting And Power Of Sin” ( 1 Corinthians 15: 56, NIV ) by Carley Evans

“Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 15:50)

Rather, the mortal will clothe itself with immortality, says Paul. When? At the last trumpet. At that moment, in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, death will be swallowed up in victory.

We know “the sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.”

The good news is that eventually we will be freed from sin and the consequence of the law which is death. At that time, we shall bear the likeness of the man from heaven. When? When we are given the victory over death through that same man, our Lord Jesus Christ.

“Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:58)

“We will all be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51) We will become like “the second man from heaven” and will no longer be like the “first man [who] was of the dust of the earth.” (1 Corinthians 15:46)

We will no longer be subject to the sting or the power of sin.
