"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" ~ 1 Corinthians 15:57

Victory! (the Greek is nikos - where Nike got their name). That's a lovely word. When I was in 4th grade, I wanted my name to be Victoria. I thought it sounded so strong and that I would be on top of things if people would just remember that my name had changed. Apparently they didn't. (would be a different story today!)

1 Corinthians 15 is all about what happens to us after we "fold our earthly tent". Death can be scary - even if you are assured of your destination. But verse 54 tells us that Death is swallowed up in Victory". Paul personifies them, as if they are characters in a play - he is downright taunting with his quotation of Hosea 13:14 in verse 55 β€œO death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” Death will be DESTROYED. What is left? LIFE! Life with Jesus Christ, all because of His work on the cross.

Romans 8:37Β  "...we have complete victory through Him who loved us!". Some translations say, "We are more than conquerors".

O victory in Jesus
My Savior, forever
He sought me and He bought me
With His redeeming blood
He loved me ere I knew Him
And all my love is due Him
He plunged me to victory
Beneath the cleansing flood
~songwriter E.M.Bartlett
