Unleashing Power

Duane Vander Klok

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

– 1 Corinthians 15:57

What Jesus did in His sacrificial death, burial, and resurrection was the ultimate victory! Not only was He victorious over the world, the flesh, the devil, sin, hell, and death, but He also made that victory available to us! That is the good news of the gospel, and your belief in this good news is what unleashes the power of Christ’s victory in your life.

Colossians 1:13-14 tells us that God has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. Through Jesus, we have both redemption and the forgiveness of sins through His blood. This isn’t something that will happen someday when we die. It already came through Jesus’ death and resurrection. He has delivered us – it is our present reality as believers!

Living in this victory involves daily recognizing what Jesus has done for us. It means thanking God for His incredible gift and walking in the freedom and power of Christ. As you understand and embrace this truth, you can experience peace, joy, and purpose. And when challenges arise, you can stand firm, knowing that you are victorious through Jesus. You are no longer a slave to sin. His victory is your victory.

Today and every day, you can rejoice and live confidently, knowing that through Christ, you have overcome the world. Victory is yours, now and forever, thanks to Jesus. Embrace this truth wholeheartedly, and let it transform how you live and interact with others.

Remember, you are part of God’s kingdom now, carrying His light into every situation you face!
