Did I Miss the Parade?

I really don’t mind missing a parade. I know today is July 4 and a parade comes naturally to mind. For some it’s a tradition and a fun way to celebrate. Watching the parade implies appreciation for those passing by and what they represent. If your own child is in the parade, all else fades and you have one focus.

I’ve never been eager to attend a parade. It seems to me that you have to get there way too early if you want a good seat. There also seems to be a need to carry way too much stuff like chairs, umbrellas, blankets, water, food and possibly a dog. Then, you add all that goes with transporting a pet.

This year I am blessed as no one has invited me to watch a parade.

But, I have been intrigued these last few days with Colossians 2:15  “Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoner; they were his!    (Passion Translation)

Was there a parade that celebrated the victory of Jesus when He rose from the dead?

Is that parade still marching?

Maybe I need to go to this parade today and celebrate that my battle has been won!!!
