2 Corinthians 2:14 – Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ (NKJV).
The 2015-16 Golden State Warriors won an NBA record 73 games. Led by Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson, they eclipsed the 20-year mark set by Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls.
Their dominance captivated the globe and might never be duplicated. Even so, they weren’t always triumphant. They lost nine games in the regular season and then fell short in the NBA Finals. The Warriors won like no other team has won before, but they were not even crowned the champions.
On the other hand, God’s children are on an ever-winning team, one that has never lost. Being in Christ lands you on the roster. The Message Bible says, “In Christ, God leads us from place to place in one perpetual victory parade.” You may experience some hard times and setbacks, but you are more than a conqueror through Him (Romans 8:37).
God is the Grand Marshal of the Perpetual Victory Parade, and you’re riding on one of the floats. You only experience the thrill of victory and never the agony of defeat. This is bigger than Mardi Gras!
