Sin has no hold on us when we have Christ

For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Romans 6:9-11 NIV

Our faith that Jesus will return for us is based on knowing He is alive. He is eternal. When Jesus returns, He will destroy death because He has the keys to the grave and will release everyone. There will no longer be a need for the grave. It is because of our sin that Christ subjected Himself to the cross. He will forever be the conqueror and lord of death. We have nothing to fear because we are dead to sin and alive in Jesus.
