COVID-19 Has Overwhelmed the World, But Jesus Has Overcome the World

He says to us in John 16:33b, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (NIV). Jesus spoke those words to his disciples prior to his death on the cross on Good Friday. He was claiming victory even before his suffering. He was looking ahead to his resurrection.

And because of Jesus’s death and resurrection, we can claim victory over our suffering as well.
