Life With Jesus: Part 2

Yesterday, I wrote about living life totally abandoned to Jesus and the power that can come from a unified relationship with God.  After I finished writing, I felt that I had forgotten to answer a very important question in regards to life with Jesus, and that is the question of why?

I've been thinking lately about the miracles done in Bible times and why we struggle to see those things happen today, even after Jesus says that we (Christians) will be able to do even more spectacular things than Him (John 14:12).

As I was reading and studying the Bible last week, I came across the story of

Death Defeated!

"When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:
'Death is swallowed up in victory.'
'O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?'
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.  But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (I Corinthians 15:54-57).
