We are grateful also for the victories, deliverances, healings and enthronement we encountered through Your Word which are Yea and Amen (2 Cor 1:20), we say thank You Lord.
Dearly beloved, the month is ending today and I believe God for your testimonies that are beyond this month, I thank God for those experiences that are for life time. The salvation of your soul and the gift of the Holy Spirit beloved, isn’t it wonderful that you have Jesus among all your victorious package this month.
Outside Jesus Christ there is no life. He is the wisdom of God and was with God from the very beginning before the foundation of the earth was laid. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… all things were made through Him and without him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (Jn1:1-4; 14).
Do you now agree with me that without Jesus, life is meaningless? We have no life outside Christ; no victory either. So if you have not yet accepted Jesus as your Lord and personal Saviour here is another opportunity to belong to this great family of God. Click here to accept Jesus Now!. And as you hear and keep the Word of God; you will be moving from one level of victory to another (Prov 7:1) never minding where you are today (Heb 11:6). For Christ, is our life:
“Christ, who is our life.” Colossians 3:4
Paul’s marvellously rich expression indicates, that Christ is the source of our life. “You hath He quickened who were dead in trespasses and sins.” That same voice which brought Lazarus out of the tomb raised us to newness of life. He is now the substance of our spiritual life. It is by His life that we live; He is in us, the hope of glory, the spring of our actions, the central thought which moves every other thought.
Christ is the sustenance of our life. What can the Christian feed upon but Jesus’ flesh and blood? “This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.” O wayworn pilgrims in this wilderness of sin, you never get a morsel to satisfy the hunger of your spirits, except ye find it in Him!
Christ is the solace of our life. All our true joys come from Him; and in times of trouble, His presence is our consolation. There is nothing worth living for but Him; and His lovingkindness is better than life!
Christ is the object of our life. As speeds the ship towards the port, so hastes the believer towards the haven of his Saviour’s bosom. As flies the arrow to its goal, so flies the Christian towards the perfecting of his fellowship with Christ Jesus. As the soldier fights for his captain, and is crowned in his captain’s victory, so the believer contends for Christ, and gets his triumph out of the triumphs of his Master. “For him to live is Christ.”
Christ is the exemplar of our life. Where there is the same life within, there will, there must be, to a great extent, the same developments without; and if we live in near fellowship with the Lord Jesus we shall grow like Him. We shall set Him before us as our Divine copy, and we shall seek to tread in His footsteps, until He shall become the crown of our life in glory.
Oh! how safe, how honoured, how happy is the Christian, since Christ is our life! The plans of the enemies to scatter the gathering of the children of God could not stand. The anti-Christ strategies employed by the Satan and its agent could not stand before Christ for in Him we have move and our being. O! glory be to God in the highest for Victory over every arrow of enemies in the life of His children, over the deadly and demonic diseases from the kingdom of darkness.
We are indeed victorious through Jesus. Christ is not only our victory; He is also our everlasting consolation. Christ is our everlasting consolation no matter how we have been battered in life by Satan and his agents, in Christ is our consolation. He covered us in the shadow of His hand …. And say unto Zion, Thou art my people (Isa 51:16):
“Everlasting consolation.” 2Thessalonians 2:16
“Consolation.” There is music in the word: like David’s harp, it charms away the evil spirit of melancholy. It was a distinguished honour to Barnabas to be called “the son of consolation”; nay, it is one of the illustrious names of a greater than Barnabas, for the Lord Jesus is “the consolation of Israel.” “Everlasting consolation”—here is the cream of all, for the eternity of comfort is the crown and glory of it. What is this “everlasting consolation”? It includes a sense of pardoned sin.
A Christian man has received in his heart the witness of the Spirit that his iniquities are put away like a cloud, and his transgressions like a thick cloud. If sin be pardoned, is not that an everlasting consolation? Next, the Lord gives His people an abiding sense of acceptance in Christ. The Christian knows that God looks upon him as standing in union with Jesus.
Union to the risen Lord is a consolation of the most abiding order; it is, in fact, everlasting. Let sickness prostrate us, have we not seen hundreds of believers as happy in the weakness of disease as they would have been in the strength of hale and blooming health? Let death’s arrows pierce us to the heart, our comfort dies not, for have not our ears full often heard the songs of saints as they have rejoiced because the living love of God was shed abroad in their hearts in dying moments? Yes, a sense of acceptance in the Beloved is an everlasting consolation.
Moreover, the Christian has a conviction of his security. God has promised to save those who trust in Christ: the Christian does trust in Christ, and he believes that God will be as good as His word, and will save him. He feels that he is safe by virtue of his being bound up with the person and work of Jesus.
Thank God for the witness and assurance that in Christ is life and He is our everlasting consolation. In Him therefore is our comfort and hope, O! God help Your beloved as they put their trust in You.
As we step into the new month, may the Lord be with us and show us the way to go even as we put our trust in Him.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
