Victory over darkness

I believe there is much darkness and chaos in the world.

I believe that Satan is prowling around like a roaring lion waiting for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).

I believe that the forces of evil are looking for every opportunity to bring down faithful, God-fearing Christians.

I believe God loves the world SO much.

I believe God heard and hears the cries of creation.

I believe Jesus is the Word of God.

I believe Jesus died on the cross.

I believe Jesus rose from the grave for the forgiveness of my sins.

I believe Jesus conquered death…

…and Satan…

…and sin…

…and all the forces of evil.

I believe that I have the victory through Jesus Christ.

Where, O death, is your victory?  Where, O death, is your sting?  The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.  But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
(1 Corinthains 15:55-57)

I believe…

    Hmmm…I never thought of this post as one connected to the Transfiguration. I wrote this with a friend in mine who is struggling with depression. But…I think I might use this on Sunday. Thanks for the insight.

    Thank you David for the sermon idea. I used this as a sermon ender on Sunday; encouraging people to leave “the mountain top” and return to the valley where there is darkness.
