Death, Where is Your Sting?

Sin & Its Effects

“We all know we will end up dead. Because of sin’s entrance into the world, every human dies, every human suffers, animals suffer, tsunamis sweep cities and villages away, volcanoes destroy whole regions, AIDS and malaria and cancer and heart disease kill millions of people old and young, and droughts and famines cause millions to starve.

Because of sin, we also hurt ourselves and others. Because of sin, others hurt us. This is why we experience condemnation, guilt, shame, despair, pain, and filth.”

This is taken from an article over at Resurgence. Today is Good Friday and we celebrate freedom from sin and freedom from our feeble attempts to beat death. We have an amazing hope as Christians because of the cross (Good Friday) and the resurrection (Easter Sunday). Don’t let today be a day when you here the same story and switch off, but engage your brain with your emotions and see how amazing Easter really is.

Take a look at the original post from Resurgence here.


am Jamie, and I am a Christ follower. I love Jesus but more importantly he loves me and made the ultimate sacrifice of his son so that all the things I have done, and will do, have been forgiven. And now I know God, and I pursue to know him more. Motivated and transformed by his grace I live for God, to glorify him by enjoying him.
