"The absolute victory of Jesus gives us freedom to respond to evil with goodness!" This seems to be the main point of our text today. The final verse of chapter 3 reminds us that Jesus is already seated at the right hand of God and that all 'angels, authorities, and powers' are in submission to Him. He has already won the battle against evil! Therefore, it is not up to us win the battle - He has already done it! This gives us freedom to follow the example and teaching of Jesus who suffered much injustice but did not retaliate. These words, of course, are much easier to say than to do! May we trust in Him fully and be so full of His goodness that we may truly learn to 'repay evil with blessing' (3:9)
