Beat Your Chest – Your Victory Is Sure In Jesus
(Passage: 1 Peter 4)
The resurrection victory – What a great privilege we have obtained through the death of Jesus Christ! Jesus paid the ultimate prize on the cross to hand over all the benefits to us at a zero cost.
No one should have an excuse for not taking the full benefits of Jesus’s death and resurrection, but unfortunately, many people are still not tapping into the benefits.
The believers (Those who have believed in Jesus) should not hesitate to utilize the resurrection benefits to their full advantage.
How did we get there? What has Jesus done to bring believers to this junction?
Jesus Christ, innocent but persecuted for his goodwill, persevered all the abuses of the enemies. He suffered for our sins to the point of death.
Christ suffered and used the suffering as a medium to exchange our sins and imperfection for his righteousness. He did all those on the cross through his pain and suffering. Christ did it all for us; as many as will believe in him shall be saved.
Hurray victory at last!
People of faith have the advantage to live freely and happily in this complicated world. What it takes to explore the advantage is a confession of faith in Jesus. That is, anyone who confesses Jesus as Lord will be aided and empowered by the Lord to live a life of an overcomer!
Countless benefits are involved, and besides the priceless salvation to obtained, a person who confesses Jesus as Lord will also have the power to live above the controls of the enemy. Sin and all works of Satan are subject to the power embedded in the confession of faith in Jesus!
Here is our confidence, as stated in the scripture,
“Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries” (1 Peter 4:1-3).
Holy Spirit Constantly Battle Satan For Believers’ Sake
Jesus Christ has engaged in a war against Satan and won victory for his followers; therefore, no child of God should live a defeated life. Satan has lost his battles against us, and now, we must live in victory.
Believers must celebrate victory in God through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
Here are undeniable benefits obtained through Jesus:
- Believers have the Holy Spirit of God available to help for all exploits.
- We can live a pleasant and pleasurable life in the presence of God.
- We can live in holiness and be in tune with heaven always.
- The Holy Spirit of God can empower us to love people during difficult times.
Holy Spirit energizes us to live victoriously every day of our lives. He (Holy Spirit) also empowers us to bear good fruits for the kingdom of God. Holy Spirit gives us the needed courage to be effective evangelists!
What a victory obtained in Jesus Christ! Indeed, Christians are the most fortunate people on earth. They have a bounty of goodness available at our disposal. They also have plentiful riches waiting for them in heaven.
In stating the obvious, anyone who aspires to live a triumphant life on earth and enjoy heavenly benefits must submit to Jesus Christ and confess him as Lord.
