(Psalm 110:1-2) “The Lord says to my Lord: ` Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.’  The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion; you will rule in the midst of your enemies.”

I don’t think I have ever met someone who liked to lose.  I have met many people who like to win!  Winning causes happiness, excitement, confidence.  You can see it each weekend at the football stadiums, as the fans of the winning teams rock the stadiums.  We like to win!

Sin causes the ultimate “losses.”  Sin causes us to have horrible guilt.  Sin causes us to fear.  Sin ultimately causes us to lose our lives for “the wages of sin is death.” (Romans 6:23)  And so for us to really be winners, we need to have an answer to sin. 

In Jesus, we have our conquering hero!  He defeated sin by living the perfect life.  He defeated death by rising from the dead.  In defeating sin and death, He also defeated the devil!  In short, Jesus won the spiritual battle for you and for me!

And now that makes you and me winners!  We follow the conquering hero!  And, we will do so eternally!

A winner in Christ, just like you,
