Question 6 – If the honest answers to questions #1-5 are YES then where is your victory?
“The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 15:56-57
You are totally incapable of any victory on your own! The only victory you will ever have is that which God allows you to have as He is in control of all things!
With this in mind the only victory that really matters has already been won on the cross of Christ 2000 years ago because He Loves you that much and more SO REST!
The reason you have victory is simply – Christ is the end of the law for ALL who believe! Since the power of sin is the law – sin no longer has any power in your life because you are NOT under the law!
The reason why so many Christians don’t have victory is that they are still under the law, trying to “do” Christianity instead of just “BE” Christians! To “be” a Christian is perfect rest in what He has already completed and while most Christians will say something similar they are dishonest!
Question #6 ask for the “honest” answers to questions 1-5 because most Christians know all the right answers but the knowledge stopped at their head and failed to reach their hearts.
The Christian life is not a life of struggle to “do” the right thing and obey the law – it’s a life abundant in the resting knowledge that it’s ALL been done for you on the cross – as knowledge of this rest becomes more and more complete and real to you – gratitude grows and that gratitude grows an inexpressible and unquestionable Love in your heart for He Who IS your victory!
