All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. – Ephesians 1:3 (NLT)
I remember one time I ran at a cross country meet. I got a ribbon for 5th place and I was so excited. It was the first ribbon I had won running cross country. The only thing that was bad about the ribbon was that at this meet there were only six other runners. My victory at the cross country meet wasn’t that great, because I wasn’t that great of a runner as there was only one other runner that finished after me.
Jesus won a total and complete victory over sin. He didn’t just squeak by and sort of win a victory as I did at cross country. Jesus won an overwhelming victory over the devil. So what does this victory look like for us?
It means that you don’t have to struggle with a learning disability. You don’t have to be bound by social anxiety. The victory Jesus won was great enough to conquer any strategy of the devil in your life. Today, choose to see the complete and great victory Jesus won over Satan and be thankful you can live a free life.
