And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death. Revelation 12:11 NASB
What Jesus did for us by shedding His blood, gave us complete victory over every enemy we face. Not some, but EVERY. This scripture shows us that in three parts;
- They understood the value of the shed blood and the power in it.
- They understood the power of their words.
- They understood that they belonged to God completely, servants of another Kingdom, ambassadors of heaven and that to leave this world would only take them home.
It’s one thing to accept the part that Jesus gave His life for you, but it’s yet another to take up your own cross and follow Him.
What about you, my friend? Are you truly serious about your walk with God? Is it a convenience factor or are you completely His? Did you sign the contract with God to get the good stuff, or did you understand that contract was to forfeit all for the Kingdom of God?
May you become the overcomer in your family, your job, your world. May the words you speak testify of God’s goodness, grace and mercy. May signs follow in the form of astounding miracles as you touch unbelievers everywhere. And may those miracles be saturated in the love of God He freely gives.
