An Epic Battle
By the time you read this it will all be over. The weeks of build-up, the predictions and prognostications, the hype and hyperbole, it will all be over. One team will have prevailed over the other. One person will be singled out as the MVP of the game and he will say that it was really a team effort. There may be some analysis done after, especially of the ‘mistakes’ made by one team that led to a turning point in the game. Names will be inscribed on trophies. And then what? What significance will there be to what has happened? What difference will it have made in the world?
If you want to talk about an epic battle, the most epic battle ever took place many years ago. It did not take place in an arena with thousands looking on though the outcome of this battle has effected every person who ever lived. This battle had thousands of years of build-up. Many people looked forward to this battle taking place without really understanding how it would all play out. Upon first examination of this battle it will seem that the champion of the people will have gone down in defeat. He will have laid down his life in this battle, seemingly having lost.
But Jesus’ death was not the end of the battle, he came back from that grave as the victor, he rose gloriously to his throne in heaven. He wears the victor’s crown and rules all things for the good of his people. His victory made a real difference in the lives of his people, and their futures.
