1 Corinthians 15:50-58 Victory at the Cross
At the resurrection, death will be no more. The power of Satan, sin and death has already been defeated on the cross of Christ, but in this life mankind is still plagued by them. In the Kingdom of Heaven, however, they have no part at all. The victory has been won by Christ. Therefore Paul calls on all Christians – then and now – to be steadfast and to let nothing deter them from the work of the Lord. In this world we shall meet with all kinds of problems and troubles, but what we do for the Lord cannot be lost, is not useless, and is never in vain.
