🔑Key to victorious life in Christ
👉 God gives us 4 keys to live a victorious Christian life.
🔑 The first key is learning the truth of our new life in Christ.
📌 *Jesus Christ has given all Christians everlasting victory over sin and death. *
📌 *Now He wants us to live in the victory He has provided for us. *
📌 The spiritual reality is that when we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, by His Holy Spirit, Jesus literally and spiritually comes into our spiritual hearts.
📌 The Holy Spirit also puts us into Jesus as part of His spiritual body, the Body of Christ.
📌 So, We are in Christ and He is in us.
📌 vs. 3 says that when we were baptized into Jesus, we were “baptized into His death.”
🔑The second key is counting on the truth of our new life in Christ .
📍We should RECKON ourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
📍Therefore we should not let sin reign in your mortal body, that we should obey it in its lusts.
📍The new life belongs to us because we belong to Jesus, but we have to start taking the new life into account.
🔑 The third key is yielding to the truth of our new life in Christ.
🔖 This is the hard part, because in vs. 12-14, we find that we are pulled in two different directions at the same time.
🔖 We should not YIELD the parts of our body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather YIELD ourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and YIELD the parts of our body to him as instruments of righteousness.
🔖 This new freedom becomes ours on the day we believe in Jesus and receive Him as our Lord and Savior.
🔑 The fourth key is walking in the truth of our new life in Christ.
🖍*We have to start walking in the new life we have in Jesus Christ. *
🖍We were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should WALK in newness of life.
💥*We can live in Christian victory! *–
• By Learning the truth,
• *By counting on the truth, *
• By yielding to the truth,
• By walking in the truth of our new life in Christ.
*But do you have the new life? *
💥That’s the place to start.
💥We get this new life by turning to God and opening your heart to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
Let’s enjoy a victorious life in Christ Jesus
