God’s Hope for Your Heart from Mark 15

JESUS CAN TURN YOUR DEFEAT INTO VICTORY

And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, “Aha! You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself, and come down from the cross!”  (Mark 15:29-30)

When the passers-by looked at Jesus, they thought they saw a failure…but they were blind.

When they mocked His past prediction, they thought they spoke the truth…but they were wrong.

When they challenged the Messiah’s methods, they thought He was misguided…but they were mistaken.

Jesus works in ways that may be unseen and unexpected, but that are unstoppable.  His power operates along paths that may seem unusual or unorthodox, but it’s undeniable.

Jesus doesn’t just pry victory from the jaws of defeat; He uses defeat against itself!

He can do the same for you.

Whatever battle or struggle you face, don’t lose heart.  Whatever failure or defeat you’re experiencing, don’t lose hope!

If you’re in Christ, you can walk in the strength of Jesus today, filled with unstoppable hope because of this unbelievable truth: Jesus can turn your defeat into victory.
