The results of sin plague every facet of our existence, sometimes so much so that life often seems hopeless. That’s why we need to remember that sin’s curse has been dealt a fatal blow. The day Jesus rose from the dead is the day the end began for everything bad in our world. Our Easter celebration begins as we remember that the greatest enemy of all—death—was conquered by life. Though the form of death remains, it has been robbed of its true essence and power, its ability to separate us from our God and from our loved ones. Jesus lives! Death is dead!
