The Power of the Cross and the Hope of the Resurrection
The Cross Arrested Sin
The Resurrection Released Hope
Jesus had the power to overcome death, and through His death, burial, and Resurrection He has likewise made believers more than conquerors over sin and death (–1; 8:37). We look forward to that blessed hope () that when Christ comes, we shall be made alive with Him (). Through faith in Christ, we can look forward to an eternity one day where He will wipe away all tears and there will be no more sorrow ().
