Hello Friends, I was spending some time in the word this morning, and I decided I must share this goodness with you Let's start at Colossians 2:12 and end in verse 15 -
"buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through the FAITH of the operation of God, who hath RISEN from the dead. And you being DEAD in your SINS and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having FORGIVEN YOU OF ALL trespasses; blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us; and took it out of the way NAILING it to his cross; and having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them OPENLY, TRIUMPHING over them in it."
So, basically - Jesus took your sin (and mine) and nailed it to his cross despite our humanly flaws and nasty flesh, and he moved this sin out of the way. This sin that was obstructing our path to the Father. And not only did he take away our sins and wipe our slate clean, He made an open show of the Devil in front of all his friends. Now if that doesn't make you wanna shout.. your shouter is broken..! In a modern translation (let's call it the Crystal Komala Version, or CKV..) this verse might just say "and Jesus kicked the Devil's butt in front of all his friends". All that power he THINKS he has over you, He doesn't! Remind him today that not only are you forgiven - but you are triumphing in this life because Jesus has set you free!
Shew - go ahead y'all.. shout awhile!
