1 Corinthians 15:57 – But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (NIV).
I remember a time when I was playing high school basketball. It was game day, and we were hosting a team from out of town. The visiting school was unable to make it for whatever reason and had to forfeit. Our team was present and in uniform, so we were credited with the victory just for showing up. We didn’t even have to break a sweat!
The same is true for you in Christ Jesus. God has given you the victory over your enemies through His Son. All you have to do is put on your uniform (or new nature) and show up to the game. When you take your place in Christ by faith, the devil has to forfeit. He is fully aware of his already-defeated status. You have won, and he knows it.
1 Timothy 6:12 says, “Fight the good fight of faith” (NIV). There’s going to be a fight, but it’s going to be good. It is not a battle of wits, nor is it one of brut strength. You don’t even have to break a sweat. Receive Christ’s triumph as yours by faith.
