Second Reading for the 8th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

1 Corinthians 15:54-58

Summary: Through Jesus, we have victory over death. Be steadfast and devoted to the Lord's work, knowing it is not in vain.

Victory Over Death

Brothers and sisters:

When this which is corruptible clothes itself with incorruptibility and this which is mortal clothes itself with immortality, then the word that is written shall come about:

Death is swallowed up in victory.
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 who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, be firm, steadfast, always fully devoted to the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
