Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Cor 15:57). Jesus Christ has already defeated death. He won a definitive victory on the Cross on our behalf, and rose from the grave so we could follow Him into Heaven! As Christians, we must remember that we live from a position of victory – not struggle! Jesus Christ has already conquered death on the Cross. We should never fear what has already been conquered and no longer poses a threat! And we should never engage in warfare when victory has already been won. Know your rights as a disciple of Christ: to live a life free from all guilt, condemnation and fear!

Prayer:

Father, thank You that Jesus was victorious so that I don’t even have to fight. I receive everything He did for me on the Cross. I rely on Him as my Lord and Savior. I am Heaven-bound because He made a way for me!
