Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could He die, and only by dying could He break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. Only in this way could He set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying. (Hebrews 2:14-15 NLT)
What is your greatest fear in life? For most people it is the fear of dying. We all know that we will die. We just don’t know when. Satan is the originator of sin. Death is the result of sin. Therefore, Satan’s kingdom is a kingdom of death. Jesus has provided a solution to our fear of death. He gave up His divinity and took a human body like ours. Through the death and resurrection of Christ, Satan’s power has been broken. We no longer need to fear death. Because of Christ’s resurrection we know that we will be resurrected when Jesus returns. We may still be subject to death now, but the day will come when death will be no more because Jesus has power over death.
