Checkmate

7 04 2012

In a painting call “The Game of Death”, a young fellow is seen playing chess with the devil. Apparently the devil has won the game, judging by the position of the pieces on the chess board. A famous chess player went to see the picture, and after looking at it said, “I can save that fellow”. He explained how the chessmen could be moved to save the game and defeat the devil. This faintly illustrates what Jesus Christ has done. In one mighty move up from the grave He has eternally checkmated the devil, broken his death grip and delivered them who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives (Hebrews 2:14-15).
