We Are Victorious!
Daily Devotional Guide – 1 Corinthians 15:57
READ – “But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57 NLT
EXAMINE – As Paul thinks about the work of Christ on behalf of those who would believe; he writes a brief doxology full of thanksgiving. Paul exhaustively describes the resurrection of Christ from the dead and emphatically describes why this is important for all believers. The fact that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead proves the truthfulness and reliability of God’s Word. More importantly, Christ’s resurrection gives His followers victory in this life and in the life to come. We have been given victory over death and will be resurrected to new life when we enter into His presence.
APPLY – Everyone wants to be victorious and loves to be on the winning team. We see this in sports; winning the championship is the ultimate sign of victory. Holding up the championship trophy at the end of a grueling season is what every team sets out to accomplish. The same is true in life; everyone wants to be a winner. Unfortunately, many choose the misleading methods of the world to define what winning is. There is good news for all who trust in Jesus. We have the Victory in Christ; that means we always win! Regardless of our circumstances in life, if we have a relationship with Christ, we are victorious!
PRAY – Father God, thank You for giving us the victory in Christ. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
