CHRISTIANITY: LIVING THE VICTORIOUS LIFE

READ: Romans 8:30-37

 [30]Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.[31]What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?[32]He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?[33]Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.[34]Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.[35]Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?[36]As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.[37]Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

MEMORISE: Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Romans 8:37).

EXPOSITION
A vast majority narrowly think and believe that Christianity is simply one of the religions of the world. This is not only erroneous but also a disservice to Christ, the Founder of Christianity. That Christianity includes religious activities does not make it one. It surpasses just belief in a deity. It is a life, way and practice of Christ.

The word “Christian” appears in not more than three occasions in the Bible. At Antioch, the disciples were first called Christians (Acts 11:26). In Acts of Apostles, again, Paul, while being tried before King Agrippa, the latter said, You almost persuade me to become a Christian (Acts 26:28). King James Version says: Almost thou persuade me to be a Christian. Lastly, Peter an apostle of Jesus Christ, admonished people suffering as Christians not to be ashamed but to glorify God (1 Pet. 4:16).

To be a Christian confers on the individual a life of victory and dominion, in both physical and spiritual facets. Christianity is a call to live a daily, not occasional, victorious life. You, as a Christian, if truly, you are one, are to have victory over Satan, sin, self and the world. You are empowered to resist and not to assist these in any form. So, Christianity is full of life and life in full.
Stop ‘religionising’ it! Live it, act it, stay victorious in The First Overcomer’s name!

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, give me dominion over flesh that makes me a religionist rather than Your follower.
2. Oh Lord, help families to take their family altars seriously.
3. Father, shut up the mouth of devourers that are out to pull the Church down in our country.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: 2 Kings 7:19 – 9:32; John 10:8 – 10:29.
