In John chapter 16 verse 33, Jesus has just told his disciples "that in this world you will have trouble." Jesus doesn't offer a life without, persecution, opposition or resistance. He warns the disciples in fact, that they will experience these things. When we accept Christ as our Savior it isn't a sign-up for a trouble free life. We will endure hardships, but the hope that Jesus offers is in the second part of that verse with this powerful statement, "But take heart! I have overcome the world." We will go through things in life, we will face battles, we will be tested and tried. But Jesus won over 2000 years ago when He conquered the grave, therefore a life lived in Him is a life of victory! Through Jesus we have the power to live UNDEFEATED!
