THEME: VICTORY IN CHRIST JESUS
What comes to your mind when you hear the word “victory”? It means the overcoming of an enemy or antagonist, an achievement of mastery or success in a struggle or endeavor against odds or difficulties.
Think about a soldier on the battlefield , his rifle raised as he faces a brutal battle. His future is uncertain and he doesn’t know if he’ll see home again, but he’s fighting for the glory of the cause he believes in.
Nothing so terrible could ever happen to us that would keep us from being in Christ, or to keep Christ from loving us, or to prove that Christ no longer loves us.
Hardship, trouble, famine, exposure, threats, or violence—we are “more than conquerors through [Christ] who loved us.”
Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything! (Romans 8:37 TPT)
That victory, our place in God’s family, our share in the inheritance of His glory, cannot be taken from us by any means. We conquer in the sense that none of these things can overcome what God’s love has gained for us.
Jesus Won the Victory at the Cross that …“You were dead in sins, and your sinful desires were not yet cut away. Then [God] gave you a share in the very life of Christ, for he forgave all your sins, and blotted out the charges proved against you, the list of his commandments which you had not obeyed. He took this list of sins and destroyed it by nailing it to Christ’s cross. In this way God took away Satan’s power to accuse you of sin, and God openly displayed to the whole world Christ’s triumph at the cross where your sins were all taken away.” (Colossians 2:13-15 NLT)
But, Jesus was and is the cure. He absorbed our sins into Himself. We were forgiven because He took the punishment that should have been ours.
To have victory in Jesus, we must accept Him as our Savior. So, we no longer live our life for or take pleasure in the things of this world. If you have not given your life to Jesus, now is the time. Acknowledge Christ and claim the victory! Confess your sins and accept Him as your Lord and savior. If you are already saved, then be encouraged, you have victory over death and sin through your faith in Jesus.
Prayer Point: Lord, help me to trust in you at all times. That I may live the life of victory over death and sin which you’ve already given to me.
