Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. – Hebrews 2:14 (NLT)
This week we’ve been talking a lot about contentment. We’ve focused on working to be content regardless of our circumstances.
Today, however, we’re going to look at why we can be content, even if things are not going the way we would have planned.
Hebrews 2:14 shows us that Jesus did something amazing when He died. He broke the power of the devil and the power of death. That is such amazing news. Why?
It means that even in the middle of all the uncertainty in the world around us, we know that Jesus broke the power of death and the devil. We don’t have to fear death because Jesus defeated it. We don’t have to fear the devil, Jesus defeated him.
So we can live free from fear, content because Jesus broke the power of death and the devil in our lives.
