Daily Thought: The Victory Has Been Won

"Scripture clearly teaches this perspective: Christ has already won the victory (1 Cor. 15:1ff.; Col. 2:15; and Heb. 2:14ff.). The crucial battle has been fought and won in the incarnation and the resurrection. The ceasefire is yet in the future. Jesus' followers continue to fight against the principalities and powers (Eph. 6:10ff.) until he comes again to bring about the final end of the war. We do not know how long the warfare will continue. As we battle the forces of evil, we also witness in the shadow of Christ's victory on the cross and his ultimate victory to be achieved at the final coming. We fight with the conviction that someday all weapons will be placed at the feet of Jesus. This concept should encourage all believers. It can also exhort all to be be faithful to Jesus and his cause." ~ Robert Lowery; Revelation's Rhapsody: Listening to the Lyrics of the Lamb; p. 43
