THE VICTORY OF THE RESURRECTION
Sunday 4th April, 2021
The victory of Christianity is the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
SCRIPTURE: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth Go ye therefore….Matthew 28:18-19.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Victory of the resurrection is the victory of light over darkness.
Today symbolically marks the anniversary of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Our Master, Jesus Christ, rose in victory on the behalf of mankind.
The victory of Christianity is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If He was only crucified and buried but did not rise, there would have been no need for church. Paul the Apostle confirms this when he says, “If Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:14). But we thank God that Jesus Christ arose. He’s alive. Amen!
Now, what is the victory of the resurrection? It is:
- The victory of life over death (1 Cor. 15:55-57).
The victory of the Cross is the victory of life over death. It is the victory that life won over the forces of death. Death came to bury life, but it couldn’t conquer life.
- The victory of light over darkness.
The victory of the resurrection is the victory of light over darkness. The light shines in darkness and the darkness comprehends it not (John 1:5). The forces of darkness came to bury light but it was not possible. Light dissipated darkness. The victory of the resurrection is therefore, the victory of light over darkness.
- The victory of the truth over lie.
The victory of the Cross is the victory of the truth of God’s word over the lies of the devil. Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6), prevailed over the devil, the father of all lies (John 8:44). Lie came to fight the truth but the truth prevailed over lie. It is the victory of the truth over lie.
My counsel to you is, key into the victory of the resurrection and reject every form of captivity.
Remember this: The Victory of the resurrection is the victory of light over darkness.
- Go through today’s message once again.
- Make up your mind to key into the victory of resurrection and reject every form of enemy captivity and bondage.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for the victory of the resurrection. I reject every form of captivity and bondage in my life Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
