Being led in Triumph

Posted by appolus on November 23, 2020

2Co 2:14 But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.

Every triumph we have we have in Christ. He is our victory and in Him we have victory. If we overcome it is because He overcame. If we love it is because He first loved us. If we forgive it is because we are forgiven by Him. When we weep, we know that He wept first. And when we give comfort to others it is because we ourselves were first comforted by Him. Every good thing, every triumph we have we have in Christ. This is why He leads us in a triumphal procession. And as we follow Him in victory then the world gets to witness the knowledge of Him and His victory over hell and sin and death.

They get to see how He broke every chain and how He healed our broken hearts. Every obstacle removed. They see a new creature in Christ who in Him has taken captive that which had formerly held us captive. We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. You see that phrase “in Christ.” This is the key to everything. We must be found “in Him.” Paul suffered the loss of all things to be found “in Him.” And when we are found in Him, then and only then is the fragrance of His beauty and glory and majesty and knowledge spread abroad in the hearts of man everywhere.

    Yes brother Frank! Yesterday I said to the Lord that I needed a war song. I have many hymns in my heart, but this time I feel I need for something to ignite the soldier I was called to be. I opened an old hymnal I keep to teach myself hymns, and it opened to I Dare Not Be Defeated. As soon as I saw the title I knew that was it. I pulled up the song on youtube and listened to it repeatedly for about an hour, gradually memorizing lyrics. Today, in the midst of a physically crushing work day, I said ” O Lord what’s that song???” and it popped into my heart and played all day in my mind and heart.

    ” A victor, a victor, because of Calvary! Make me an over comer, a conqueror, a conqueror Lord in thee!

    It was a balm for my spirit and strengthened me to honor Christ in all I do.

    Praise God for the wonderful guidance of the Holy Spirit, who continually leads us to our conquering King in that great procession to victory!

    Thank you brother Frank for your writing today. It is was just the thing i needed to read.

    God bless you!
