Take any field game- soccer, football, hockey, basketball, baseball, volleyball, etc. You’ve got two teams pitted at one another and they’re both trying to win doing two things.
1. Score against the other team
2. Prevent the other team from scoring against them
Rarely does any team win coming out the other side of a game without having some scores against them from the losing team. But does it matter? it just matters who won.
But we get upset that Satan uses everything he can to count against us: divides friends, families, churches, workplace, our own selves, emotions, thoughts etc. And some of those things stick. We get beat up by it. It absolutely is terrible when we have a score against us.
But it just matters who wins, and if you read Revelation at all- Spoiler Alert: We win.
Whatever score Satan has on us, Christ is ahead and wins.
Really, the trick most of the time is to see that we are on the same side. It’s not our competence that allows us to win, but it’s the grace of Christ Jesus that carries us across the winners line.
However, I’m still stepping up my game, because I want the Redemption of Christ, using me, to carry many many many many many more across the finish line,
Don’t worry about what was scored against us. We won and that’s all that matters.
