September 23-Death

Scripture Lesson: 1 Corinthians 15:51-58

On this date in 1949 before the game, Cleveland Indians owner Bill Veeck and a few players hold a funeral service to bury the 1949 pennant in center field. Yesterday the Indians were mathematically eliminated from the American League pennant race.

These words from Paul to the Church at Corinth are often used to bring comfort in funeral services. The reassurance for a believer is that death holds no victory over us. God has given us the victory over death through Jesus Christ our Lord. As a Christian we need not fear death, for death for us is just moving on to our heavenly home. None of us want to die but we know for each of us that day will come. When that day comes we can face it in faith knowing we can share in the victory Jesus won over the grave.

1. How did Jesus win the victory over death?

2. How can we share in that same victory?

3. Why is it important to tell others about Jesus and the victory He has won over the grave?

Thank God today for the victory over death that is ours through Jesus Christ.
