The Good News of Victory over Evil is Found in Jesus

The prehistory we have in Genesis 1, particularly, verse 31, presents humanity as very good. This state went on even in Genesis 2, all we knew of humanity was goodness. Yet, it seemed there was the tendency in humanity to embrace evil against the good. There was a provisional victory of evil over good in Eden as we read in Gen 3.

This left a very deep mark on humanity, such that every time, we witness a kind of struggle in us between good and evil.
The good news of victory over evil is found in Jesus, "the strong person", who could bind the powerful deceiver, Satan, and take away the weapon of manipulation he relied on (see Mk 3:20-35). So, for those who are in Christ, though, they have inclination to do evil, they will do more of good. Thanks to the help of the Lord!

This privilege is open to anyone who is willing to become a member of his household which is made possible by our obedience to his teaching. Instead of obeying the deceiver, we must listen to the Redeemer. If we live by faith as St Paul encourages in 2Cor 4:13-5:1, we will be victorious over natural propensity.
God loves you! God bless you!
