Today’s Scripture

“When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; He has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”
Colossians 2:13-15 (NIV)

“Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, ‘Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. ’”
Revelation 12:10-11 (NKJV)

Reflect on the Word

It is finished! In Jesus, the law is satisfied, our debt is paid, and the enemy of our soul is defeated. All strivings cease through the victory of the cross. Our confession of faith and identification with Christ clothes us in His righteousness, setting us free from the accuser. We are liberated by the blood of Jesus under the authority of God’s Word, empowered to overcome the dark forces of this world.

Prayer + Contemplation

  1. Pause, breathe and contemplate the reality of Christ’s fulfillment of the law, your identification with Him, and the resulting victory over the powers of darkness.
  2. Contend for loved ones who are seeking righteousness by their own strength, that they would recognize and receive that which was already accomplished through the cross.
  3. Ask the Holy Spirit to illuminate ways you rely on self-sufficiency or lean into legalism, and allow Him to bring corrective healing to those areas.

Family Moment: Righteous in Christ

Read Colossians 2:13-14. What does the word “righteous” mean? (Answer: Perfect, holy, without sin.) Because God is righteous, He cannot tolerate sin. But God is also loving. Because of His love for us, He makes a way for us to be free from sin and brings us back into His family. Jesus takes our sin and gives us His righteousness. Through Jesus, we not only can live in God’s presence, but God’s Holy Spirit lives in us to help us to become like God. This is the Good News! Have you made the decision to follow Jesus? Adults, share your testimony with your children, and offer them the opportunity to follow Jesus, or celebrate with them if they already are.
