1 Corinthians 15:55-57 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Although it appears like death can strike at any moment, death no longer has dominion over those who believe. Jesus redeemed us from the curse of death. Like any promise found in the word of God, our faith must be applied to receive this redemption. If we doubt or don’t believe that Jesus defeated death for us, we can’t expect to reap the harvest of long life (James 1:6-7).

God, Himself, promised us 120 years (Genesis 6:3). Now that we’re redeemed from the curse of death, we don’t have to be worried about what may happen to us. We can calmly go into the worst neighborhood at night because we know we’re covered. We can maximize our abundant life by trying new things and traveling to exotic places because we’re protected. We can live a fear-free life because death is defeated.

Apply faith to this promise and receive a high quality abundant life.
