Joshua 13:1-33; Isaiah 9:8-10:4; Luke 24:36-53

But thanks be to God, which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57

All of Christ’s work testifies to victory. Shouting “finished” (John 19:30) from the cross He paid the price for our sins. Rising from the dead He won the victory over death. Ascending to the Father through the air, He demonstrated His victory over the prince of the power of the air. Someday Christ will return to gather us in the air, revealing His glorified Bride, the fruit of His victory. Later He’ll return with His saints, defeating the world’s armies, and setting up His kingdom on earth. Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ. —George Ferrier

O lead me to the Man that died, who all God’s nature glorified;
Descending to the depths of woe; and for us vanquished every foe! —Alfred Mace
