VICTORY!ONE MINUTE BIBLE
The book of Hebrews gives a thorough overview of Christ as Savior. It also ties the Old Testament with the New.
In one of the final chapters the unknown author offers a summary of Christ's victory (and ours) in these energizing verses--
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." (12:1-3)
Christ's victory became ours! He (we) conquered sin, death and Satan. We will fully experience that victory in heaven above!
REFLECTION: Christ's supreme sacrifice becomes our celebration!
