The Glory of Perishing

The greatest fear we fight with is the fear of death. As our outward body weakens, dismantles in capacity and shrivels in lowering stages of disintegration there is an inner transformation in Christ. Our inward person is being renewed to resurrection in Christ.

We see it pictured in the chrysalis stage as a worm is bound into a cacoon to transform through the binding threads of deaths webs of impossibilities to a metamorphous, bursting out as a butterfly.

Hebrews 2:14-15
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, Jesus also took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Jesus took on this human body. He lived a perfect sinless life. Took the weight of the punishment for our sin on Himself. He destroyed sin, dismantled the sting of death and defeated Satan.

He rose to eternal life victor over all our enemies. His perfect love cast out all fear.

In receiving and accepting Jesus, by faith in His loving call to us, we are embraced by His promises forever to be made like Him in resurrected life.
