God in Christ has taken the sting for us


I remember once witnessing the scene of a little boy and his father as I was in the car with them when suddenly out of nowhere a bumblebee flew in the car window. Since the little boy was deathly allergic to bee stings, he became petrified. His father saw his pain-stricken face and reached out his hand and grabbed the bee, and pointed to his hand. There still stuck in his skin was the stinger of the bee. "Do you see this?” he said. “You don’t need to be afraid anymore. I’ve taken the sting for you.” And this is the message of Easter. We don’t need to be afraid anymore. Since the worst that could happen to us has been conquered by our heavenly daddy who loves us so much that He would die for us. Christ faced death for us. And by His victory, we are saved. God in Christ has taken the sting for us! First Corinthians 15:22 asks: “Where, oh death, is your sting?” Christ has taken the stinger for us. He has risen! Fear is gone. New life is ours so live don’t just exist. Live because He lives and you are called to live as well. With a big smile for you today and always,
