We are fighting against that mentality that says “Even though we are saved, we still cannot live above sin” — that idea that renders the sacrifice of Christ useless and makes the cross powerless in our lives. We are fighting against this reality that is proclaiming that Jesus is a failure and salvation is a scam. When our very leaders are falling deep into sin and acting like unregenerate souls, it tells the world that what we preach is nothing but a lie.
Is there any real transformation in Christ, or is it that some people just get lucky? If it is by chance, then there’s no need to be a Christian, for even non-believers become morally upright by chance. Yes, chance happens everywhere, so why come to Christ? If Christ is what we claim He is, then there must be real evidence of His transforming power in the life of everyone who comes to Him.
If Christ is the greatest, then the victory we experience and demonstrate must be greater than anything the world has ever seen. In the midst of the thickest darkness, we would shine even brighter. Yes, we would be victimized, assaulted and downtrodden with all the hate, bitterness, anger, mockery, wickedness, and evil that the world could offer, and yet we would only respond with love, sincerity, and wisdom that is out of this world.
We are fighting to truly represent the God whom the angels see and can’t stop crying, “Holy, holy, holy”. A purity so beautiful that you can’t look away but cry out in admiration. We are fighting to restore back this glory, for our name has been rubbish and we have become a mockery to the world. We are pressing to apprehend this victory in Christ and display it so that the rest of the world might know that indeed we are truly saved from sin.
Let the banner of victory be raised, let the tales of our victory reach the far ends of the world, and let people come from every corner of the earth—those who long to taste and partake of this victory. Let them come with confidence, knowing that this unbelievable victory truly lies with us and among us. This is what we are pursuing in the course, “Victory Over Sin“. This is where we begin to explore that victory and know it as a tangible reality, learning to submit to it until it masters us, apprehends us, and manifests effortlessly in our lives.
