God’s Magnificent Triumph Over the Flesh

1 Corinthians 15:57 — But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

God is the supreme force in the universe. No one is more powerful, or more awesome than Him. God has parted seas, raised the dead to life, and given us victory. God has immense stake in our lives because He loves us. He will always fight for us, and He will always win. He gives us victory, and has given us victory in two major ways.

God defeated sin. Ever since Adam and Eve fell from perfection the world has been tainted by sin. No one is sinless, and no one is by nature close to God. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”(Romans 3:23) That is a fact of life in this world. God couldn’t stand this separation, and sent his son to make a way to Him. Now “all are justified freely through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:24) God defeated Sin. He doesn’t defeat sin only when we accept him. He defeated it and created a way to heaven.

Romans 3:23-24 — for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

God also Gives us victory every day. Victory over temptation, sin, and hard circumstances. That doesn’t mean that we wont be tempted, sin, or have hard times. God has the power to overcome these when it is best for us. Hard times may be a lesson, and temptation may be a way to strengthen ourselves.

God has the potential to defeat all things. He won the battle for our salvation, and is winning battles in our lives everyday. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31).

Romans 8:28 — And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
