I Did It!

Whenever our toddler completes a task or spells a word correctly, he triumphantly declares, “I did it!”

When Jesus told the disciples, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33), He could easily have said, “I did it!  I have overcome the world.  Do not worry.  You can do it too.”

In Revelation 7:14-17, we read about Christians who have overcome the great tribulation and persecution.  They are clothed in white robes of Christ’s righteousness.  They have persevered.  They have kept the faith.  They have finished the race.  Now they have laid up a crown which they can claim in victory.  When they receive their crowns from their Lord and Saviour, they can each declare with joy, “I did it!”
