While reading my Bible this morning, I re-discovered this passage in Corinthians.
What a joy it is to have a God who has power even over death!
Not only that, but he can and will keep the promises he makes.
That last verse made it onto my "inspiration chalkboard," as a reminder that even the little household tasks I have to do today are important if they are done for God's glory.
This corruptible must put on incorruption,
and this mortal must put on immortality.
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption,
and this mortal shall have put on immortality,
then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written,
Death is swallowed up in victory.
O death, where is thy sting?
O grave, where is thy victory?
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable,
always abounding in the work of the Lord,
forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
~ I Corinthians 15:53-58 ~
