August 6, 2017 - Facing Up to Death - I Corinthians 15:55

posted Aug 14, 2017, 6:47 AM by Grant Garber
Main Question

Can we meet death head-on with the confidence that we aren’t death’s victims but death’s victors?

  1. The two extremes people go to when they talk about death.
    • Some say “death is nothing”, even calling it “beautiful”.
    • Some say “death is everything”, making too much of it.
  2. Jesus Christ offers people a faith that enables them to acknowledge the reality of death and at the same time to insist upon the victory of life – life in and through Him.
    • These people of faith have the assurance that enables them to say something to death.
    • Three views of death –
      • Death as we see it in the experience of Jesus.
      • Death as we face it in our own human experience.
      • Death is overcome and swept away through the resurrection of the body.
    • “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” You can say that to death – if you have Christ!
