Jesus… loosed the pains of death.

Ac 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: 23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: 24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

This morning I rejoice that the Lord Jesus Christ rose victorious over death. He conquered. And because we are in Him and He in us (not by our own merit, but by His grace), we, too, can be more than conquerors through Christ. Praise the Lord that we don’t have to go through this life defeated, downtrodden, or discouraged. Our Lord is victorious, and one day, we too will rule and reign with Him.
