Victory is a Man
by Chip Brogden
"Thanks be to God which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (I Corinthians 15:57).|
When God is pleased to reveal His Son to us, we will learn that
Victory is not a thing, but a Person; that Victory is not an experience, but a
Man; that God does not give me a thing called victory, but has given me
His Son in the place of victory in order to be my Victory. Then Victory will
never be future-tense and far-away, but Ever Present and Now. For Victory
is Christ. And Victory lives within you.
Thus, Victory has nothing to do with the devil, and everything to do
with Christ. Since most Christians have more faith, assurance and
reverence for the devil than they do for the Lord Jesus, it is easy to see why so
many are defeated.
