(1 Corinthians 15:57) “But thanks be to God!  He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!”

Have you felt like a “winner” this week?  I pray so!  For that is what you are!  You are an eternal winner, because God has given you the victory!  When Jesus rose, He won the ultimate victory, defeating sin, death, and the power of the devil!  And He has given that victory to you!  To me!

But!  The old devil can sure try to rob us of the joy of that victory, cant he?  He leads us into sin, he reminds us of our failures, he accuses us of sins committed, he reminds us of things we don’t have (and blinds us to the many things we do have), etc., he can lead us to feel like losers.

So what does God do?  He keeps on giving us the victory!  Through His Word He reminds us over and over again that He’s forgiven our sins, that He’s won eternity for us, that He is on our side, etc.  Over and over again He reminds us that we are winners, through Him!

And so bask in the victory!  No don’t be spiritually lazy, but rejoice!  You are a winner in Jesus!

Thankful to be an eternal winner, just like you,
