Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/28/18

This week’s scripture is from Colossians:

“Having disarmed principalities and powers [forces of evil], He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them [by the cross].”   (Colossians 2:15)

In this season that celebrates evil and pays homage to darkness, let us remember that Christ is the victor. Regardless of the sin in this world, regardless of the attacks of the enemy against us, regardless of the battles we are forced to wage, 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 Satan, sin, evil, and death, once and for all. For Jesus is King, Jesus is Savior, Jesus is Lord. It is finished; He triumphed.

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