When Christ was Crucified, He paved the way for the destruction of death. Death is... not what it is used to be. It used to be a giant, dire monster with large gaping jaws... there lies death with sharp, pointy teeth.
My 5 month old is fussing. He has no teeth, but he will grab things and gum them, and fuss and complain. Death is more like my son now... he will gum you, he will make you messy, but he isn't going to devour you, no matter how terrible he shouts, no matter how loud he gets.
I have no idea if this is a good analogy, but it resonates to a me right now.
