Standing under the finished work of the cross of Christ

In my blog today, I want to share around the finished work of the cross of Christ, and what it means for us, as Christians. In Colossians 2:15, Paul reminds us of what Jesus did on the cross: ‘Having disarmed the powers and authorities (principalities), He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.’ Jesus defeated Satan and all his forces of darkness on the cross. In dying on the cross, and rising from the dead, Jesus defeated Satan with his (Satan’s) most powerful weapon… death. Satan is now a defeated foe, and has no power or authority over Christians, except where we surrender to his lies, and give him a foothold in our lives.
