Victory and what it looks like -part two.

Posted by appolus on March 16, 2021

If we were to break down Victory in Jesus and peer into what that looks like, what would we find? We have already talked about confrontation. That is the overarching structure. Gethsemane was a confrontation. Jesus confronted His fears and His own will and was victorious. Calvary was the culmination of confrontation. Revenge was confronted and defeated by “Forgive them father.” Sin was confronted and defeated. Despair was confronted when Jesus cries out “My God, My God why has thou forsaken me.” Gross darkness was confronted and overcome by the light of Christ. Death was confronted, the grave itself, and was overcome by His glorious resurrection. This is what victory looks like and this is the process that all of us who would desire to live a Godly victorious life find ourselves walking through. There is no other way. You will be confronted by all of these things if you desire to live a victorious life. And it is how you react to that confrontation that will determine the kind of life that you will ultimately live. The abundant life in Christ is entirely paradoxical to what the world and much of Christendom believe it to be.
