We declare that Jesus Christ is Lord! We confess that through His death and resurrection Jesus has defeated the devil, the world and our sinful flesh. If that is the case, why is there still evil in the world? Why are we plagued by sin? Why is there death? In this story, Jesus explains that His victory and Lordship will be realized at the end of the age. Yet, in the midst of the evil in this world, we stand upon and confess the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
