C.H. Spurgeon reminds Christians of their victory. It is a sweet victory.
He has conquered every foe that obstructed the way. Cheer up now you faint-hearted warrior. Not only has Christ travelled the road, but he has slain your enemies. Do you dread sin? He has nailed it to his cross… Do you fear death? He has been the death of Death. Are you afraid of hell? He has barred it against the advent of any of his children; they shall never see the gulf of perdition. Whatever foes may be before the Christian, they are all overcome… God has taken away in the person of Christ all the power that anything can have to hurt us. Well then, the army may safely march on, and you may go joyously along your journey, for all your enemies are conquered beforehand… You shall, it is true, often engage in combat; but your fight shall be with a vanquished foe. His head is broken; he may attempt to injure you, but his strength shall not be sufficient for his malicious design. Your victory shall be easy, and your treasure shall be beyond all count.
