Mortality can now take on immortality in the victory of Jesus. We who were once under the curse of Adam, now have eternal life because Jesus has won the victory for us. Death is swallowed up in this victory and the sting that so many feel is taken away. Death is just a sleep for us and we mourn with hope…knowing that we will be transformed to be like Jesus and we will live with him forever. So we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus for in it we live with him forever.
