“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57.
Christians do not have to live with a defeated mentality, but should always live with a victorious attitude.
The Lord Jesus Christ’s triumph over death was the greatest victory ever. Since the beginning of time, no one has ever conquered death. It is a cruel and ruthless enemy which has defeated everyone. But the good news is that those who are in Christ will be in victory with Him. Mortals will be transformed into immortality (1 Corinthians 15:53-54).
Since we know that we have triumphed over death in Christ, we should not feel defeated today. It is unavoidable that we may lose a few battles here and there in this life, but it is important to always keep in mind that we have won the war in the end. Let us be strong in the Lord always, having the victorious attitude, fighting the good fight of faith each day, knowing that the victory is already ours.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, please lift us up from discouragement into your victory. Amen.
