Jesus destroys the Devil’s power

Sermon series

Hebrews 2:14-16,

“Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death – that is, the devil -”. Hebrews 2:14

In a football game, the power of big, strong, muscular men is ruled by a man with a striped shirt and a whistle. The referee alone has ultimate authority in the game. He alone has the power to stop the game and even throw rebellious players off the field. That’s the type of authority Jesus claims for Himself. In spite of Satan’s attempts to control the universe and the affairs of men, Jesus wears the striped shirt and carries the whistle. He controls the field of play. If we are going to accomplish our mission, we must operate under His authority.

The devil though muscular, experienced and stronger than we are, is subject to the power of Jesus Christ. Therefore, anyone who will win the battle against the devil must submit to the lordship of Jesus Christ. He is the only one who has defeated the devil and can help you defeat Satan in the game of life. By His death He destroyed the power of death on our behalf so that all who accept Him as Lord and Saviour will be free from the fear of death. Since Christ has won the battle for you, you need not fear Satan anymore. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Are you in Christ?
