How are you doing this week in light of Jesus’s promise from John 16:33?

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart, I have overcome the world.”

The tribulation might be in persecutionĀ for your faith, or in relational/financial/physical brokenness. It may even be found as a result of your own fallenness.
But Jesus says that we areĀ to take heart and have faith in Him, because He has overcome the world. By His life, death, and resurrection, He has defeated sin, death, and Satan once and for all.
And in Him, we have victory as well. It’s not a victory defined by the world, but by the cross. That is something for which to give thanks to the Lord.
New Life, take some time this week to meditate on this promise. Do you trust that Jesus has overcome? What does “overcoming” look like in your life?
Happy Thanksgiving!
In Christ,
Pastor Tim
