Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.|
1 Corinthians 15:57
As we become more aware that we face a spiritual battle with the forces of evil in heavenly places (Ephesians 6:10-12) , we need to be reassured that the battle has been won for us by Jesus. While we will face skirmishes with the evil one, some of which will be very difficult, as long as we cling to Christ Jesus as our Lord and reason for hope (Colossians 1:23) , our victory is assured! What is eternal about us is already with him waiting to share in his triumphant return in glory (Colossians 3:1-4) . This means that demonic forces of evil cannot have us or separate us from Christ (Romans 8:37-39) because our lives are joined to him who conquered all the powers of evil and reigns eternally.
In a week when the world flirts with the prince of darkness and dabbles in what is evil, it is important for those who believe to give thanks for having our victory won and future secured. In Jesus, weve been given the best seat in the best house, not just for life, but forever!
