We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us! Our victory is in Him. He has already conquered sin and death for believers positionally, and He continues to enable us to conquer sin in this life practically. We are to find the source and ability to fight sin in the enabling of or Savior.
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 NKJV) “Rejoice always, (17) pray without ceasing, (18) in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (19) Do not quench the Spirit. (20) Do not despise prophecies. (21) Test all things; hold fast what is good. (22) Abstain from every form of evil. (23) Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (24) He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.”
We must rely upon our Savior to sanctify us completely. He is faithful. We can show our dependence as we come to Him in prayer, in the reading of His Word, and through fellowship with the Body of Christ, our church family. He will conquer our sin and we will give Him all the glory.
(Revelation 5:6 NKJV) “And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.”
We look forward to seeing our Savior in heaven. He is worthy of all glory and honor because He was the lamb that was slain. He is in heaven as “a lamb as though it had been slain.” We will forever look upon the Lord in all His glory, and at the same time see Him as the Lamb of God who takes away our sins. We will worship the risen Lamb for all eternity. May we picture our Savior slain for us today and worship Him for laying down His life on behalf of His people.
