Victim or Victor
Scripture: John 18:1–18:11
"I Am He"
Why is it that when we look at the cross of Christ, we see a victor and not a victim?
Jesus dies willingly
- He does not hide or resist
- “I am he” (Jn. 18.5)
Jesus dies sacrificially
- He dies to save and rescue others
- “So if you seek me, let these men go” (Jn. 18.8)
Jesus dies victoriously
- He accomplishes the work
- “It is finished” (Jn. 19.30).
Take Home Idea: Jesus’ willing and sacrificial death disarmed satan and secured God’s victory (Col. 2.15)
