What does Jesus mean? Take heart. Where am I taking it it? Whose heart? The full verse John 16:33 reads, "In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, for I have overcome the world.” (NIV)
The idiom "take heart" simply means, "be encouraged." Jesus references here the trials we will inevitably face as believers in our temporary home. He asks us to set our eyes on eternity and take heart. I have overcome the world.
We hope you will use this lock screen as a reminder that the battle has already been fought. It has been won-- and you are on the winning side.
