Victorious Christain Living - Featured

victorieThere is a great deal of confusion today regarding what is involved in victorious Christian living and what makes it possible. Some of the answers being given out are plainly wrong, and many others are only partially true. It will be in the teaching of the Scriptures that God’s answers will be found.

It is not possible in this brief treatment to mention everything which could be said, but a framework will be developed to note God’s wonderful provisions for us in this area of victorious Christian living.

The death and resurrection of Christ are at the very heart of the gospel (I Corinthians 15:3-4) "Christ died for our sins … and He rose again the third day" the Apostle Paul declares. How are these benefits applied to us? Again, the Apostle states, "To him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" (Romans 4:5).

It is by personal trust in what Christ has accomplished through the shedding of His blood and His bodily resurrection that salvation is appropriated. This is God’s gospel; yet there are false gospels abounding, such as the sacramental gospel—"I need the Church’s sacraments in order to be saved", the Iegalislic gospel—"I must do something or obey some set of rules in order to be saved", the whole gospel—"Social involvement is necessary in order to be saved", or the full gospel—"I must have an emotional experience with the Holy Spirit in order to be saved". The Bible’s attitude toward diverse gospels and their proclaimers is clear: "If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:9).

One of the main reasons why there is uncertainty about Christian living is due to the fuzzy thinking about the Gospel and the significance of trusting in Christ’s death and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins. There are times when tolerance may be a virtue, but this is not true when it comes to Biblical teaching.

Christ’s death and resurrection are not only the basis for the forgiveness of sin, but also are the basis for breaking the power of sin in the believer’s life today. The Scriptures declare, "Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over Him. For in that He died, He died unto sin once: but in that He liveth, He liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:9-11).
