But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57)
Sometimes we need a reminder that we, God’s people, have much to celebrate together—mainly because of Jesus and His victory. God wants His church to move forward by focusing on our victorious Savior, and seeing how His victory points to ours. For instance, because of Christ’s victory:
- We can believe that God can handle every circumstance and situation we experience.
- We can believe that God is supreme and sovereign over all earthly things, especially our enemies.
- We can believe that we need not fear anything because Christ’s victory over death has gained eternal life.
- We can believe that we must be the body of Christ, doing the work of Christ, by the Spirit of Christ, and not of ourselves.
- We can believe that we need not be ashamed and that we cannot be condemned because Christ has had victory over ours in.
All of this victory allows and empowers us to move forward as the body of Christ—being His kingdom, and expanding His kingdom. What is it that you need to believe about Christ’s victory to help you better be part of His kingdom mission today?
