Victory through faith


If you’ve ever watched any children’s movies, you’ll notice how often there is a common theme of good versus evil with good triumphing over evil in the end. This underlying theme that tugs at the hearts of most creators is due to the fact that there is a real battle of good versus evil that has been ongoing since the beginning of time.

Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God. And everyone who loves the Father loves his children, too. 2 We know we love God’s children if we love God and obey his commandments. 3 Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome. 4 For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. 5 And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God. (1 John 5:1-5, NLT)

In most fiction stories, victory is attained by a superhero of some sort whose power, strength and wisdom are able to defeat the enemy. In reality, our superhero is Jesus; more powerful and wise in every sense, He attained victory through the cross. When we put our faith in Him we receive or step into this victory. It’s as though Jesus is the ultimate hero, but when we believe in Who He is, we too become superheroes with the superpower of faith.

The key difference between Christ and our fiction heroes is that He gives us the tools we need to continue to win our fight on a daily basis. Christ has won the war for us, but each day there is still a battle to be fought. By faith in Christ we know the victory is ours!
