Frank Peretti tells the story of a family driving on vacation and a bumble bee flew into the car. One of the children was deathly allergic to bee stings. In fact, he had nearly died from one. The allergist warned the family that another such sting could be fatal.
Of course, the boy became hysterical. The quick-thinking father pulled off of the road and caught the bee in his hand, and the boy relaxed.
But after a moment, with a grimace on his face, the dad let the bee go. Again the boy became upset and jumped into the backseat trying to get away from the bee. But the dad calmed him by saying, “Don’t worry, son. You don’t have to be afraid.”
And the father showed his son the palm of his hand that was beginning to swell, and revealed the stinger. The dad said, “It’s okay. Now all he can do is buzz. This is what could have killed you, but I took the sting away.”
So did Jesus. That’s why Paul could say, “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.” 1 Corinthians 15:55-57
And because of Christ’s resurrection, to the Christian, all death can do is buzz.
