The news here of late showed the replica of a tyrant with a noose about its neck. Soon the replica was found broken, and a show was made openly of the tyrant. What a sweet victory for those living under the callous hand of the unjust ruler. The hand of the enemy had been broken and there is much celebration because of the newfound liberty.
Now consider the tyrant that would that none repent but that all die in sin. Consider the enemy destroying lives without care of who is hurt. Just imagine living under the callous hand of the enemy who is unjust caring nothing for your soul.
Now imagine, as those loosed in that far land, a Saviour, coming to break the hand of the enemy. Just imagine an open show made of the enemy because of his defeat. Consider the relief when the slave master no longer can hold you in bondage.
Sweet victory has already been provided. Jesus has already defeated the enemy and has taken the keys he should not have had. Yes, the open show has been made and the victory of the Christian, new and old, is just cause for celebration. Yes, there is victory, sweet victory!
