Walk in His Victory
But turning to them, Jesus said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me, but weep for yourselves and your children.
As Jesus was on His way to the cross, a large crowd followed Him. Many women were among them, weeping for Him. Jesus, however, was not concerned for Himself. He was concerned for these women and their children. He was ultimately headed for victory over death through resurrection power. They were headed for death and eternal damnation unless He did what He was about to do.
Christ overcame every blow, every stripe, every wound that man inflicted upon Him. While He died a cruel physical death, He rose in victory by a power much greater than His earthly flesh or man’s sin. Because of His victory, we have the hope of victory over our difficult circumstances today. His sacrifice gives eternal life for those who believe in Him. His resurrection means that our sins are forgiven, and God has accepted that sacrifice. Through Him, we have the power to overcome anything this world or its ruler may throw at us.
Don’t weep for Jesus. He is a victor and not a victim. Weep for those who do not know Him and are destined to live defeated lives without Him. If you belong to Christ, know that your victory is already won. You just need to walk in it.
Have a blessed day!
