Death Where Is Your Sting (Cory Asbury)

Artist: Cory Asbury
Words and Music: Cory Asbury
Album: Reckless Love
Release: 2018
Tempo: 79 beats per minute
Key: C
Details: I remember one of elders in a local renewal movement I attended saying that we should celebrate more in Jesus’ resurrection than Christmas day contrary on our custom. It is because the resurrection day is a proof that everything in Jesus teachings are true and will come true.

Death is inevitable and admit it we are fear of it. Even most people who wants to go to heaven afraid of death. Jesus understand our fear of it so He shown the way and prove how this fearful thing can do nothing against him.

Corinthians 15:55-57, “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.  But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

In this verse, death also signifies sin and sin has no power over God through Jesus Christ.

About the song, one of my favorite from Cory Asbury. It has a powerful chorus that is easy to remember both melody and lyrics.
