I've been reading through the book of Hebrews to begin the year in the Scriptures. I keep going back to chapter two, verses fourteen and fifteen. Here is what I wrote in the margin of my Bible:

"Jesus destroys death through death so that I don't need to fear death."


Thank you Jesus.

"Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery." 

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Heb 2:14–15).
