2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new
I love Easter it is my favorite holiday because it is when Jesus won the complete and total victory. I don’t know what it is about me but I love to win. How many of you like to win? I would guess the number is pretty high.
Winning involves risk doesn’t it? Don’t you have to enter the contest or event to have a chance to win. On of the biggest problems in the church today (I know you are saying “Here he goes again”) is most people do not enter in. What do I mean exactly?
You must first decide you are going to join the team and enter into this game of life before you will ever have a chance to win. Jesus enter in over 2000 years ago, He poured Himself into His life and look at the result. Total victory! He conquered, sin, the grave, death, Satan, sickness, disease…you name it He defeated it.
How did He do it? Well the first step was agreeing to become involved. He had to make a decision to first come to Earth, that just got the ball rolling. Every day He had a choice to make, and every day He made the right choice. What an example He left us.
When I look at the life and death of Jesus I see a Man that was focused on a goal. He came to destroy the works of the enemy. Satan had all of mankind bound in sin. In one act, Jesus’ sacrifice on Calvary He totally destroyed the grip Satan had on God’s people.
Jesus is at the right hand of the Father, He is making intersession for you and me right it this very moment. I believe He is wanting us to finish the race He has made each and every one of us to run. God made you for a purpose, find out what that purpose is and get in the race (or back in the race if you are like me)
I enjoy writing to this blog but it some times gets a little difficult to find the time and energy. Hopefully it will help to encourage you as you read this, that’s my goal. May God bless you today and every day.
As a side note- I am opening a new Christian Clothing store online, starting to stock it and get everything in order. I am selling Christian T Shirts and Christian hats, basically Christian Apparel. Those of you how know me, know God gave me a vision to take back the clothing industry for His glory. A race I have stumbled and fallen in many times, I was down not out. Go by and check it out (hopefully we will have a Grand Opening Easter…Did I mention I Love Easter?)
Until next time, remember: You overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony, and by becoming a living sacrifice. Revelation 12:11
