And in your steadfast love you will cut off my enemies, and you will destroy all the adversaries of my soul, for I am your servant. Psalm 143:12
Our Lord Jesus Christ through what we will contemplate and remember in this Holy Week cut off our enemies from the ability to eternally cut us off from God.
Our adversaries were destroyed at the Cross forever.
Our adversaries have no hope of defeating God and His people.
Yet, they still in their delusions think they have the ability to defeat God and His people.
Such is the case of all deluded, that they do not know their true status.
The beauty of God’s love in Christ is that the manifestation of this defeat is that enemies become friends, swayed by God’s love.
Ultimately, all of us were once the enemies of God and are now examples of God’s loving redemption to rescue us from enemy status.
Almighty God, on this opening day of Holy Week, help us contemplate the great love of Christ for us to redeem us from being enemies to now the children of God. Enable us toward contentment and gratitude for your love in preaching the Gospel to the lost, to our enemies, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
