Victory in Jesus

All this week, communities in the US are enjoying fireworks celebrating and showing pride in our country. Our country has many wonderful blessings and many difficult challenges, and I think we get lost in much of the conflict that goes on 24/7 on the news channels.

But that mirrors our personal lives, often we have many wonderful blessings, so many that we might take them for granted sometimes or forget about them, especially when the difficult challenges arise. Sometimes we feel like we’re overcome by it all.

But our savior Jesus gives to us a wonderful promise. Jesus says “In the world you will have trouble. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Just when we think we’ve been overcome, even when death comes, and we are overcome by it, Jesus is right there, strong and powerful, and he has overcome the world in his resurrection on Easter morning and gives to us that same victory.

So, when you look at the fireworks this week, celebrate all of our many blessings in our country and celebrate the victory you have in Jesus.
