We Are Conquerors!
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” – Romans 8:37
The best part about being in the army of God is that the victory is already ours! Think about it: when Christ died for us on the Cross, he won the eternal victory for us. Because of him, we’re headed to heaven to spend an eternity with him! Yippee! But that’s not all. His victory also guarantees our victory here on planet earth!
Imagine if Christ only saved you and then left you to spend another 30 – 60 years struggling with life on earth. What kind of Christianity is that? Useless Christianity. But the truth is, Christ doesn’t just grant us ultimate victory. He also grants us victory here on planet earth. Through Christ, men and women have overcome addictions, depression, hatred, vileness of the heart, etc.
As soldiers of Christ Jesus, we are armed and dangerous, overcoming trials and testings. And the best part is, as His army, we can share this victory with others who need it! People who have not yet tasted of the victory they can have in Jesus! Amen!
Action Item of the Day: As Spiderman’s Uncle Ben said, “With great power comes great responsibility.” The key to victory has been given to us, so let’s share it with others! Take time out today to pray for loved ones who don’t know Jesus yet.
