Scripture: 1 John 5:1-6; John 15:9-17
In our world, sometimes it’s easy to feel like we are losing the battle – like there is so much that is so wrong, like there is nothing that can make things right. We are beset by challenges, frustrations, anxieties, fear, and more. But God promises victory – victory over all that is wrong with the world, victory over the powers of sin, evil, and destruction – through the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ has won the great victory, and we are invited to experience that victory by trusting in him. What does that trust look like? What does it mean to experience the victory that Jesus has won for us – it looks like living the way of love, for God and for others.
