What Images Come To Your Mind When I say Victory
My Big Takeaway:
We do not fight for Victory but We fight from Victory
Today: I want to ask a question What is a victorious Christian?
8:33 Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. 34 Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us. 35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. (We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus) 38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.
39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The greatest chapter in the whole entire Bible starts with
8:1 Therefore, now there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus
The greatest chapter in the whole entire Bible ends with
8:39 Nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Why does this matter: Worth & Assurance
Stop trying to get your worth from -- What you can do or how good you are
Start getting your worth from -- What He has done and the God He is
37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
What is in your own path of life right now, you see as an obstacle (fighting for victory)?
How do you do when it comes “LIVING” in such a way because you are not fighting for the victory but God is already victorious in the situation
Faith - We must believe and trust that God will do what He has said and is saying
Action (Obey) - We must live lives that actually reflect the God that is Victorious through you
