Moments of history have a way of helping us to understand spiritual truths. While we know they are different, various world events become seared in our minds and illustrate a spiritual point.

On June 5, 1944, a photograph was taken of General Dwight Eisenhower which tells a rich story as the invasion of Normandy was to come the next day.

The 101st Airborne Division was stationed in Greenham Common, England when General Eisenhower spoke to them.  During his message to the troops, the commander said, “Full victory – nothing else.”

Those words, “Full victory – nothing else” describe the life of a Christian. They also described the sacrifice of Jesus.  In Matthew 16, Jesus told his disciples that the “gates of Hell” would not prevail against the church. Those words are words of full victory – nothing else.

Christ’s death brought us full victory.

“Oh death, where is your victory? Oh death, where is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15.56, 57)

Christians are preparing for their eternity in heaven because of the full victory Christ offers.

He paid the price.

He was our sacrifice.

In the end, He wins.

So, because we know the end of all things, let us…

“…be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15.58)

Just some thoughts,
