Victory In Jesus
11Â If the Spirit ofÂ him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ JesusÂ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodiesÂ through his Spirit who dwells in you. ~ Romans 8:11
The book of Romans was influential in a lot of doctrines that we see in churches today. The common theme of this book is that we are all slaves to sin and we need to be slaves of God. God sacrificed his son for our sins and then raised him from the dead. Â As a believer and follower of Christ, this is one thing that we accept and know in our hearts to be true. This is just the first step to our salvation, but an important one. None the less, once acceptedÂ we know that it is a new life. Your life is now Gods and you were dead inside before coming to the lord. Now you are armed with the knowledge of sins of the flesh and life with His spirit that lives in you. Claim victory in Jesus for he has defeated sin and death on our behalf. Leaving us with the preciousÂ gift of life through faith and freedom from the laws of sin and death and all the power that itÂ has over us.
20Â I have beenÂ crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who livesÂ in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God,Â who loved me andÂ gave himself for me. ~ Galatians 2:20
Lord, I am not perfect, I do believe that you sent your only son here to earth to die for our sins. I pray that you will continue to use me as a warrior to spread the gospel. Father give me the strength to weather the storms that lie ahead and stand firm in my convictions and love for you. Through Jesus Christ our Lord I pray. Amen.
