John 16:33  “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

There is nothing like the feeling of overcoming a great challenge.  Maybe you faced a project at work that is finally completed: Overcomer!  Maybe you faced a relationship issue that is resolved: Overcomer!  Or maybe you faced a medical challenge and you heard the words, “The scan is clear!”  Overcomer! 

This weekend we celebrate the greatest Overcomer in all of human history, when Jesus Christ overcame death!  1 Corinthians 15:26 says “The last enemy to be destroyed is death.”  On Sunday we celebrate that we can live because Jesus overcame death.  Because of this we can have a life full of peace and purpose. 

How are you doing in these areas of life?  Do you have enough peace?  Do you have so much peace that you can share some with others?  How about purpose?  Is your life guided by a higher purpose than success or comfort? 

Take a few moments to reflect on the amazing story of Jesus overcoming in Matthew 28:1-10 and trust His strength to help you overcome the challenges you face today. 

God Bless,
