This is the victory…

In the world of losers and winners, we may have moral issues over that, but the end result is that we would rather be winners and that there would be no losers.

So we are given the opportunity of having victory without having to do very much.

Sometimes when I think about the armour that God gives us…which is the greatest piece of equipment, which one could I not do without?

I am starting to believe that it is faith.

The world, in its maxims, and precepts, and customs, does not rule Jesus, He is free from all of our nonsense.  Where there is supposed conflict between Christianity and the world, understand that in the heart of the follower of Christ there is victory because Jesus has already overcome the world.

By that I mean that the power and principalities of darkness have been dominated, and the power of God has laid the foundation for a victory for the follwers of Christ over  all vice, error, and sin.

This has all been made possible by that faith which makes us one with Him, and that totally consumes us with His Spirit, that we are able to have the victory too.

The Arabic and Ethiopic versions read, “your faith”; great things, heroic actions, and wonderful victories, are ascribed to faith.  It is faith in Jesus Christ; He is the object of our faith who supports, strengthens and assists us and that faith in us does wonders, when it is enabled because of Christ, and becomes our shield, in His hand, against every enemy that opposes.
