SOTERIA: THE CONCEPT OF SALVATION (9)


“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” Romans 8:37.


LIGHT FOR NOW: A new man in Christ is victory personified.


Salvation is victory obtained for believers. When the Bible says that you are more than conquerors, it is an assurance of victory. It means that you are a victor in life and not a victim. You are absolutely indomitable. Nothing can hurt or affect you negatively. Jesus, in mark 16:18 says, “if thou shalt drink any deadly thing, it shall not harm thee”. This means that poison has no effect on a re-born man because the life he lives is divine. Nevertheless, a Christian who has not imbibed the Word and learnt to exercise his faith can easily be carried away by the storms of life. He has not learnt to put his faith to work. A simple stomach upset can have him fretting about what he ate. He is ignorant of his victorious life in Christ.


In Acts 28:5, Apostle Paul was bitten by a venomous snake. He did not cry out in pain, rather he simply shook it off into the fire without suffering any harm. The Bible records that those watching were waiting for Paul to swell, fall down and die as a result of the venom. But when that did not happen, they concluded that Paul must be a god. But then, the Bible in Psalms 28:6 calls us gods. It reads, “…ye are gods; and all of you are children of the Most High”. As a born again child of God, the life at work in you is divine. Your life is no longer based on your blood. This is why as a regenerated man; you are not permitted to suffer any blood disease. Now that you are in Christ, the Word of God is the life of your flesh. The Holy Spirit energises your body because your body is His living tabernacle. As a carrier of the Holy Spirit, sickness, diseases and infirmities cannot gain access into your body system. You cannot carry the Holy Ghost inside of you and still carry blood diseases around. It’s impossible for the Holy Ghost to dwell alongside ugly situations. The arrival of the Holy Ghost in your life is the exit of all ugly situations.


INSTRUCTION: Live a triumphant life through your constant meditation and confession of the Word of God.


PRAYER: Lord, I enforce my victory over all situations of life, in Jesus Name. Amen!

QUOTE: A believer in Christ Jesus walks in constant victory.
