Victory in Christ
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.1 Corinthians 15:57
Christ gives us victory because we serve Him and he is always with us. He guides us through the Holy Spirit every minute of each day toward victory. We can always depend on the Lord as He gives us direction and the words to experience victory. But we have to have the faith in Christ no matter what happens in our life, and he will us divine victory.
Christ has given us His power for victory over the evil from Satan. We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. (John 5:18) God protects us from the evil one, because we are in the family of God. Satan will never be able to tempt us beyond what we can bear. The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. (1 Corinthians 10:13) We live in victory in Christ to overcome the sinful nature that comes from Satan.
For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. (Colossians 3:3) This verse implies we die to our sinful self-will, and exchange it for the will of Christ. That is the way we are created to live, guided by God because we are created in his image. Even with our sinful nature of our flesh, we seek to always be guided by Christ being a Light of Truth in this world.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16) Through the guidance of Christ, we are a light in this world, bringing people to Christ. Victory is defined as we tell people about salvation through Christ; however, some people will never listen. Victory is doing what Christ has called us to do.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John10:10) Life to the full only comes when we live as God created us, guided by Christ to point people to Heaven.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1) When we live for Christ showing people the way to Heaven, He sets us free, and we can only be free when we are free from self. Our life is centered on serving Christ, and bringing God’s truth to lost souls, and this is life to the full.
Today live in victory as Christ guides us to be light in this world.
Prayer: Father, help me to always do what Christ desires, so I can live in victory by planting seeds to eternal life. In Jesus name, Amen
