Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/23/13

This week’s scripture is from Colossians:

Jesus is Risen“Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”   (Colossians 2:15)

In the world today, there seems to be a rising tide of sin and evil, but regardless of the attacks of the enemy against us or our families, regardless of the trials and troubles in our lives, regardless of the battles we are forced to wage against these things, let us never forget that the devil is already defeated. The fight between good and evil, between God and Satan, is not in doubt. Jesus has already won, and  won completely and decisively. When Christ went willingly to the cross where He suffered, bled, and died for us, then rose again from the grave, He destroyed the works of darkness; He declared victory over sin, evil, and death, once and for all. Jesus is King, Jesus is Lord, Jesus is Savior. It is finished; He triumphed.

May the joy of the risen Lord be your strength this very day.
