Christ has utterly wiped out the damning evidence
of broken laws and commandments which always hung over our heads,
and has completely annulled it by nailing it over his own head on the cross.
And then having drawn the sting of all the powers ranged against us,
he exposed them, shattered, empty and defeated,
in his final glorious triumphant act!
~ Colossians 2:14-15 (Phillips)
