FINISHING SCHOOL

 
"Jesus offered one sacrifice for sins and took His seat forever at the right hand of God; now He waits until His enemies are placed beneath His feet." —Hebrews 10:12-13
 

Jesus has already won the ultimate victory over Satan, sin, death, hell, slavery, fear, etc. It's over. Jesus is victorious irreversibly. We don't have to wonder about the outcome. As Jesus said on Calvary: "It is finished" (Jn 19:30).

All that's left is to mop up after Jesus' victory by placing His enemies beneath His feet. We do this by first throwing ourselves at Jesus' feet in submission and adoration. In this way, we join in Jesus' victory and refuse to believe the devil's lies or take his bribes. We hasten the day (2 Pt 3:12) when every knee will bend, even Satan's, before Jesus the Lord (Phil 2:10). Jesus is finished. We'll be finished, too, when we place ourselves and Jesus' enemies at His nail-scarred feet.

 
Prayer: Jesus, I prostrate myself before You as the wise men did (Mt 2:11).
Promise: "Those sown on good soil are the ones who listen to the word, take it to heart, and yield at thirty- and sixty- and a hundredfold." —Mk 4:20
Praise: Becky puts Satan under her feet when tempted to depression.
 
(Lent is approaching. Pray about ordering our leaflets, Lent and the Renewal of Our Baptismal Promises and A Prophetic Lent.)
