Your position in Christ is the key to victo

In a well known passage of Scripture the Apostle Paul makes an incredible statement. In Rom 8: 31-33 Paul says, "What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. " In other words your victory in life, your provisions, your healing, your peace and joy, your marriage and family.... all things rest upon one thing and one thing only; that is your position in Christ. You see God loves us very much and wants to bless us. But.... there is a problem, our sinfulness! And though God loves us His love cannot come through to us unless and until we are ready to acknowledge our sins and repent of them.

 

 You see, there is no way that you or I could get ourselves right with God. That's why Jesus had to come to earth, take human form, die on the cross and defeat sin by paying on Himself the price of our unrighteousness. But this is what Paul is talking about: IF we are truly in Christ, IF we have died on the cross with Jesus then we are totally and completely justified because no one can do that apart from God. Now, because we are justified and therefore we are God's children that means that we are part of God's own family, we are brothers and sisters of Jesus and because of that.... no one will come against us! Because coming against us will mean coming against God Himself! Which means that as long as we are with God and in God we are invincible, overcomers, victorious!
