Death Banished Death!

Paul says that the sting of death has been
banished. So, what is the sting of death?

"The sting of death is sin
and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God
who gives us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ."
(I Corinthians 15:56,57)

Well, I just finished reading through a
bunch of scripture to get some light on
verse 56. It seems that sin and the law
are joined at the hip! You can't have sin
without also having the law because the
law identifies what is sinful.
(Romans 5:12; 3:20; 4:15; 7:7
Galatians 3:10)

Death banished death! When Jesus
died, death died. Jesus took sin into
his body and banished the effects of
the law. Bet you haven't thought
about this too much. Go ahead, and
admit it! I'm in the same boat-- but,
this is worth some thinking time.
