God is the giver of life. But death is the great robber of life. Death has robbed us all of Joy. Death took Joy away from all of us. But Jesus came to rob death of its power to rob us of life. Jesus has already saved us from the power of death.
Hebrews 2:14 reads,
Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.”
Since we are flesh and blood, Jesus took on flesh and blood. He became flesh just like us, yet without sin. That is the reason for Christmas. Jesus was born in the flesh, so that He will die for our sins. Through His death, He has destroyed the Devil. Through His death, Jesus has destroyed the power of death. Through His death, Jesus delivers us from the fear of death.
Therefore, in Christ, we win over death. In Christ, we receive eternal life. Though we die, in Christ, we live forever. In Christ, we get back the things that death has robbed us. We get back our loved ones. We regain our joy.
Have you trusted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior? Have you trusted in the One who has broken the power of death by His death and resurrection?
Come to Him now! Call on the Lord and you will be saved.
