How to avoid fighting a needless battle
August 9, 2012
He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.
I remember in the first Gulf War against Iraq, the Americans and allies so decimated the Iraqi military communication system, that several days (and even weeks) after the war was concluded and the arms laid aside, there were Iraqi soldiers who were still fighting because they didn’t know that Iraq had retreated and the war was over.
It reminds me of many people in the world today who live their lives struggling to obey and make the best of life in this dark world. Yet they never find victory because they don’t know the war is over.
But for those who accept the victory of Jesus Christ through what He accomplished for you upon the cross, peace will come into your heart, the battle will be done, and the truth of our Lord’s words on the cross, “It is finished” (John 19:30), will become reality in your life.
As Christians, we don’t fight for victory. We fight from victory. And thanks to Christ’s work on the cross, that victory can be yours today if you’ll only trust in Him. When you do, you can have every confidence that the victory against sin and darkness is yours and you’ll live forever with Jesus Christ!
FIGHT FROM VICTORY—NOT FOR VICTORY—BY PLACING YOUR FAITH IN CHRIST AND DECLARING THE WAR AGAINST SIN AND DEATH TO BE OVER!
