Many of us know John 1:9 by heart: If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. But how many of us can quote Romans 6:13? Listen to the words of Paul given to him by the Holy Spirit: Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of sickness, but rather offer yourself to God, as those who have been brought from death to life, and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.” I want to challenge you to pray through this verse today and ask God to give you insight for your life. Ask Him what this means for your life.
How radical would it be to start your day off thinking victory, not defeat; to awake to grace, not shame? Facing temptation with the mindset of knowing you are a child of God and you are to live for His glory. Asking the Lord to work through your eyes, your mouth, and through your thoughts, and actions to carry out His victory. Praying each day that when we face temptation, we would claim the strength that He has given us to overcome! Sin has no authority over me any longer.
Think about this way, we are under new ownership! Promoted by love, we serve a new master. By the grace of Christ, let’s live as a victor, not as a victim. I hope you have a great Saturday! God bless.
Good morning my friend! It is Hump Day, and we have another day to live and invest in others! I have a very short word of encouragement for you this morning. It’s like some really good beef jerky. It don’t seem like much, but it’s a lot to chew on.
1 John 5:4-5 says, “For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Som of God.” Victory is not something I win, but Someone I receive into my life! Victory is a gift I receive in the Person of Jesus Christ! Are you on the winning team? Have you experienced the forgiveness of sin? Have you been set free? There is VICTORY in JESUS! Go and celebrate that today! Tell the world about our incredible Savior. I love you guys! God bless you and your family today.
Good morning! I want to cover some powerful verses in a very short blog. God’s Word is powerful and life changing! There doesn’t have to be fancy illustration or creative words to see lives changed. God work in our hearts this morning!
1 Corinthians 15:54-57 says,”Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” Because He lives I can face tomorrow! Because He lives all fear in gone! He holds our future, and life is worth living just because He lives! We are VICTORIOUS because of the blood of Jesus Christ!
1 John 5:4-5 says, “For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” If you are in Christ you are an overcomer! Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world! You are a child of the King and it is time to walk in victory. You are not a victim but you are a power warrior of the living King. Jesus paid a very high price for this victory, now it is time for us to walk it out!
Walk in victory and not defeat! You are an overcomer and a mighty warrior! Choose this day whom you will serve. Rise up Church and let our lives bring Him Glory!
