For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves.” Colossians 1:13

Satan rules the dominion of darkness. Once we were under the power of Satan, for we were sinners, rebels against God. We were in the darkness of sin, and as sinners were under the curse of death. Humanity was helpless and without hope.

Whilst we were yet rebels and enemies of Almighty God, He showed His mercy towards us. God had compassion on us, and rescued us by sending into the world His one and only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Such was His love for us!

Jesus Christ came into this world to die for sinners, so that through Him, we might have life. For those who believed in Him and received Him into their lives life, He delivers them from the grip of Satan, and brings them into the kingdom of God, where Christ is the King of kings. Those who trust in Christ live in the very household of God, as His children, members of His household. No longer then, in the dominion of darkness but in the dominion of God’s love. Be sure that you are in this safe place and stay in this safe place!
