He Has Overcome!

It's Word-Filled Wednesday!!! I'm so thankful that, when the ick of life comes, I have Christ in me. "Greater is HE that is in me than he that is in the world." (1st John 4:4b) Thank You, Lord Jesus, for Your indescribable gift!

The Message translation of this verse and the ones preceding it is fabulous:

John 16:31-33 (The Message)
Jesus answered them, "Do you finally believe? In fact, you're about to make a run for it—saving your own skins and abandoning me. But I'm not abandoned. The Father is with me. I've told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I've conquered the world."

When I read your post, this scripture came to mind, "Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." (Romans 8:37)

Hey, thanks for sharing the version from The Message... very illuminating.

It's so amazing to think that WE are the Temple of the Holy Spirit... that Christ dwells WITHIN us. We can't get much closer to Him than that. :~D

(My word verification is "sureful". :o))
