You can’t be an overcomer without challenges to overcome.You can’t be a more than a conqueror without wars to conquer.
You can’t be victorious without a fight to win.
You can’t be a light in the world without darkness to confront.
You can’t have faith without a mountain to move.
You can’t be a blessing without being blessed FIRST.
Oh YES, you can’t LOVE like HE DOES without being LOVED BY HIM FIRST.
THANKS BE TO GOD WHO GAVE US JESUS all because HE SO LOVED you and me.
It is a kind of LOVE that is unfailing, forever-pursuing, ever-committed, and unstoppable regardless of what it takes until we get drowned in the depth of His goodness, His grace and His mercy.
When we have Jesus we become OVERCOMERS for He overcame the world for us. He deprived it of its power to harm us and have conquered it for us.
When we have Jesus we become MORE THAN CONQUERORS for He conquered it ALL by His Blood that even death has lost its sting with the Resurrection Power that raised Him from the dead. MIND YOU … the same power, the exceeding greatness of His power, is living inside of us and is ABLE to give life to our mortal bodies. How can we lose?
When we have Jesus we are declared VICTORIOUS for He ALWAYS causes us to triumph. We don’t fight TO victory but we fight FROM the victory He has won for us when He said, “It Is Finished!”
When we have Jesus we are the SALT AND LIGHT of the earth for He IN US is the Everlasting Light that can NEVER be put out.
When we have Jesus we can SAY to the mountain in front of us …”What are you, O mighty mountain? Before the Lord you will become level ground with shouts of GRACE! GRACE! GRACE!”
When we have Jesus we are BLESSED for His word says …”I will BLESS you and make your name great and you shall be a blessing.”
When we have Jesus we are empowered to LOVE because HE FIRST LOVED US.
We CANNOT give what we do not have.
How blessed, fortunate and to be envied we are when we come to realize that JESUS is ALL we need. If He is our ONLY OPTION and the ONLY ONE we HAVE, we’re at a GAIN. What a priceless privilege, an overwhelming preciousness, a surpassing worth, a supreme advantage to KNOW HIM Who is the author and the finisher of our faith.
JESUS is The Way, The Truth and The Life.
When we have Him, we HAVE The Way where there seems to be no way.
We have The Truth that causes lies, fears and doubts to dissipate.
We have The Life for he who has the Son has life.
IF HE IS ALL THAT WE GOT, SURELY WE GOT IT ALL!!
Thank YOU, Jesus …
