I just finished watching the movie Overcomer. This is a wonderful family friendly film that will leave you full of hope and reminded of who you are in Christ. I highly recommend it. If you haven’t seen it yet, don’t worry, this post is not intended to be a spoiler alert. Rather, this is a gentle reminder that as followers of Christ, the ‘deck’ is tacked in our favor. Even in times when life seems uncertain, we can rest assured that brighter days are ahead.
Here’s the proof.
Come with me to the Book of Ephesians. This book of the Bible was written by the apostle Paul. In the first two chapters, Paul writes that we are blessed and redeemed by Christ. I don’t know about you, but that’s good news for me.
Here’s what you’ll discover after reading Ephesians 1:1-22
You are blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.
You were chosen before the foundation of the world.
You were predestined to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ.
In Christ, you have redemption.
You have forgiveness of sins according to the grace of His riches.
You have obtained an inheritance.
You were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise who is the guarantee of our inheritance.
Is there any doubt that you’re an overcomer?
Now, go see this movie. I promise you won’t be disappointed and you’ll walk away feeling hopeful, just as I did.
