1 Corinthians 15:57 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

1 Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!!! 


This morning as I was praying, I was thinking about when God called me to Himself. How He came rushing in and swooped me up, washed me off, set me on His lap, and called me His own. There were no ultimatums. His love wasn’t conditional, nor His forgiveness. It was simply, “Accept my Son, repent, and ask for it.”


Imagine if I lived my life that way. Going around loving and forgiving those around me simply because I could? Imagine the way the world would look if every true disciple of Christ did this? Imagine if we as Christians showed God’s lost children that the Cross was a weapon for them and not against them? Christ led me out of bondage not with extensive rules and regulations, but with love, patience, kindness, and forgiveness. If Jesus set the tone that way, who am I to change it?


I may not know a lot of things, but I know this for sure: Jesus rescued me, changed me, and called me His own and did it without any threats or condemnation. Our victory was not bought will the blood of armies or of nations but by the perfect Blood of Jesus Christ!!! His love saved me, His mercy changed me, His grace sustains me, and His peace maintains me!!! My hope and victory rest in Jesus, and I pray yours does as well!!! Victory was a gift given to us by God. Will you accept this gift???


Be encouraged and be encouraging!!! I love you all, God bless, and glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!
