In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
The “world” Jesus refers to is material sense. The belief of life in matter. It’s too frequently a place of trial and suffering, sorrow and woe.
“But be of good cheer,” Jesus exclaimed, “I have overcome the world!”
Alleluia! Jesus conquered the world! He demonstrated that we have spiritual individuality with God in Spirit that is never touched by sin, disease, or death.
As we lay claim to the Life in Spirit that Jesus demonstrated, we overcome the world too. We master sin, disease, and fear of death. We leave suffering behind and enter the gates of heaven where harmony and peace reign supreme, and suffering is no more.
