A Righteous Man Won’t Stay Down

A Righteous Man Won’t Stay Down

You Can’t Kill a Peep

Little marshmallow confections are everywhere. You know what I mean. Peeps! These animal shaped candies fill store counters at Easter in a variety of colors and flavors. The tough sticky center reacts like sugar coated rubber because they are indestructible. You can stretch them, bite them, and stomp on them but Peeps do not lose their shape. Once I saw a demonstration on television where someone ran over one with a bulldozer and the candy chick still bounced back up. You really can’t kill a peep.

As believers, we need to know that we are indestructible on the inside, too. When the devil comes against us with attacks, we have the ability to bounce back because of the power of cross.

When a Peep bounces back the original shape is retained. The identity cannot be taken away. Our identity is in Christ and we retain our shape no matter what comes against us.

A righteous man may fall seven times but gets back up. We do still make mistakes and fall from time to time. The important thing we need to remember is because of Jesus we don’t stay down. We can keep getting up and getting up which reminds our enemy no matter what he tries to do to us, we are victorious.

Smashing a Peep results in a marshmallow resurrection. The devil’s attack against the righteous results in reminders of the Son of God’s resurrection. Because of Jesus we don’t stay down.

Happy Resurrection Day!

  1. Truth with a lighthearted touch. Love it!

  2. Thanks, every time I see those peeps I think of how they can’t be squashed (or eaten either!).
