“Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives” (Hebrews 2:14-15).
From the dawning of creation the base fear of humanity is the thought of death — considered the greatest of all evils. And while the resurrection of Jesus does not change the fact that everyone of us is going to die a physical death, what it does change is our attitude. In fact, today’s scripture considers the fear of death to be unreasonable. The fear of death isn’t something you have to overcome, it is the very thing that Jesus thing overcame for us.
