Focus on God’s Goodness-Victory In Jesus

June 4th, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in First Corinthians 15:57.

“Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

In Jesus, death is swallowed up in victory, so He is the clear winner over the forces of darkness when it comes to the Gospel.

Jesus invites us to join Him on the winning team.  His grace is sufficient to help us overcome the forces of evil in the heavenly realms, the value system of the world, and our own sinful nature. He is able to help us gain victory over anxiety, discouragement, and the daily pressures that weigh us down. He leads us to victory over death by offering the gift of eternal life.

On the night before Jesus died on a cross, He said to His disciples, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world!” That’s encouragement to give us peace and hope as we follow Jesus.

Victory in Jesus reveals the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
