Scripture: Genesis 3:15
What image pops into your head when you hear the word warrior? Maybe you envision Russell Crowe in Gladiator, or Viggo Mortensen in The Lord of the Rings. Either way, we can likely all agree, the warrior is the one who saves the day.
How does Jesus fit into our mold of what a warrior should look like and how one should behave? He's not quite what we would expect from a warrior, is He? We understand that Jesus is indeed the Warrior that God sent to break the power of Satan. But because His assignment was different than the modern day hero that we see in movies, we miss key aspects of His victory.
There is so much more to what Jesus accomplished than many of us realize. As a result, we don't walk in the fullness of what He has truly done for us. We don't understand the battles that He's already won, the foes that He's already defeated, or what all He truly sacrificed on our behalf. In this series, Dr. Merritt invites you to take a closer look at the Hero of all heroes. Discover what it really means to have a Savior Who is the greatest Warrior of them all!
