Colossians 2:13-15, ‘[Jesus] forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.’
‘It was Finished upon that Cross’, paying attention to Verse 1.
Some people say that life has no purpose, that there is no justice or goodness, and that only death awaits us. But when Jesus completed his work on the cross, he defeated the powers of evil and darkness completely. Our lives are ruled by the king, Jesus, who moves us ever closer to an eternity lived in joy, justice, goodness, and peace. Evil and sorrow will not prevail. The battle has already been won.
Thank God for securing the victory over evil through Jesus. Thank Him for a coming world of perfect love, justice, goodness, and peace. Thank Him for his protection over us even now.
