The pure sinless one has won against the power of sin and has defeated satan. King Jesus’s victory gives us hope, against temptation, he has been tempted just as we are yet without sin as we learned last week. Col 2:13-15 “And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.” Christ has won against Satan, Sin, Death and Evil. His sinlessness provided atonement for our sinfulness. His victory gives us hope in the midst of trials and tribulation. As one author writes, “(we) may now look on that enemy, however fearful it may appear, as condemned and killed in the death of Christ, We are to look to Christ hanging on the cross and there vanquishing and overcoming this archenemy- as a public person, representing the elect who died in him.. From hence, even while fighting the believer may account himself a conqueror, indeed more than a conqueror, through Him that loved him.” Our conquering King now, gives us power to overcome sin and death through his victory and purity.
