Victory Through Christ

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 
(1 Corinthians 15:57 ESV) 

As Christians, our victory is through Jesus Christ. Victory over the world, the flesh, the devil, sin, and over the current coronavirus crisis, was won by the Cross and empty tomb that we celebrate and focus on especially during Holy Week. Through death on the Cross and Resurrection on the third day, Jesus did for us what we cannot do for ourselves. 

Writing in 2 Corinthians 2:14, Paul states that Christ always leads us as believers in triumphal procession. We can have victory now and for eternity because of the victory Christ has won for us. 

Especially during the present time of crisis, look to Christ in everything. Be anxious for nothing (Philippians 4:6), and look for opportunities to share your faith with others while listening to the Holy Spirit to direct your every step and thought. 

“When we pray for the Spirit's help ... we will simply fall down at the Lord's feet in our weakness. There we will find the victory and power that comes from His love.” 
- Andrew Murray
