Topic: VICTORIOUS LIFE
Text: 2 Tim 4:2-4
Golden Verse: “Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage –with great patience and careful instruction”. 2 Tim 4:2
Each believer has been called to live a life of Victory. Victorious living is all about complete acceptance of the offering of our Lord Jesus and His true teaching.
A lot of false doctrines and false teachings have permeated the churches today, just as foretold in the text of today. We are in the age when people rather prefer to listen to a specific type of message, rather than the truth of the Word of God. You hear people saying various things and justifying it with a twisted understanding of the Word of God.
Living a victorious life does not mean a life devoid of challenges or issues, but it means a life of Peace in Christ Jesus. Jesus said in John 14:27 that ‘Peace I leave with you, Peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid’ and that is the victory we enjoy in Him as believers.
Would you want to enjoy a life of victory in Jesus, then you must focus all attention on Him alone so that you can enjoy the offering of His peace and live a victorious life. Full attention on Him and His words would ensure that even in the times of trials and uncontrollable temptations, you still live in Victory.
A victorious life is not about being the richest person in your neighborhood, or in your church, rather it is a life whose daily living portrays absolute trust and faith in God and His Words.
Remember the Words of Jesus today and continue to enjoy the Victory that He offers.
Lord, help me to understand that you have already given me the victory and I only need to focus on you and your word to enjoy the Victory always.
