The Death of Death (Darryl Siemens) | Imperfect Series

These are 9 of the most encouraging verses in scripture. Jesus has defeated sin and death. If we are in Christ death no longer needs to hold any fear for us. Because Jesus has defeated death, no matter what this mortal life may bring, we can be “steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work because we know that our labour in the Lord is not in vain.”

Sermon Notes:

  • The fear that plagues us all: death.
  • Receive victory and inheritance – not fear and death (v. 57, 50)
  • Three problems of fearing death
    1. Deny the power of Christ (v. 57)
    2. Deny the security of Christ (v. 51-52)
    3. Lose the motivation to work for Christ (v. 58) 
  • And yet… loss still hurts (v. 54-55)
  • When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in his spirit and greatly troubled. 34 And he said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to him, “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus wept. (John 11:33-35)
  • There is hope in the mystery of the gospel (v. 51) 
  • In this life – live for Christ (v. 58)
  • For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain (Philippians 1:21)
