Victory in Christ
"Christ is our new reality!" Looking at Colossians 2:6-17, Richard showed us yesterday how we are to walk in victory as we live in the truth of who Christ is and what He has accomplished through His death and resurrection. You can listen to Richard's message entitled Stinking Thinking here, where he explains how our thinking can hinder us from walking in the victory that is ours in Christ. This is what he showed us:
The Victory Cycle
Be Rooted: Having received Christ as Lord, the believer must be rooted in Christ. Jesus must become the believer's new reality - the One we live for, live in and depend on. Col. 2:6,7
Expose: Any thought that is contrary to the truth of the believer's reality in Christ must be exposed. Any thinking that is based on the lies of the enemy and the deception of wordly wisdom must be taken captive and made obedient to Christ. Col. 2:8
Realise: The believer must understand and realise (bring into reality) the truth of what s/he has received in Christ: God's wisdom, power and authority! Col. 2:9,10
Appropriate: The believer must take possession of the truth of what Christ has done for him or her, having been buried with Christ and raised to new life through faith in the power of God. Col. 2:11.14
Conquer: Christ has triumphed over the enemy and has been raised to the highest place of authority. The believer must trust in the victorious One who dwells in him or her to overcome and conquer any thought that seeks to take the believer captive and is opposed to the believer's reality in Christ.
We praise God for His revelation to us and for helping us to walk in victory as our minds are renewed according to our reality in Christ. Hallelujah!
