THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
In 1983, the island of Granada was being overrun
Pres. Reagan ordered troops there.
Victory was won in just 8 hours.
However, there were several insurgents who remained
in the small country.
They kept sniping at our troops from hiding places.
So, the President ordered a residual force to remain in
the country until total victory was assured.
2 Tim 1:6
6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up
the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
LIGHT from the WORD.
When Jesus expired on the cross, then rose from the grave
three days later, He won the victory.
He clearly defeated Satan! (See Gen. 3:15)
Jesus crushed Satan's head by dying FOR you and me.
His victory was proven when God's Holy Spirit raised Him
from the grave, and ascended to heaven.
But Satan is a serpent!
His body is still writhing around, dragging many with him
The church (the body of Christ in the world) has been left to
"occupy" until Jesus returns! (See Luke 19:13)
You, Christian, are part of God's residual army left to secure
the victory until Jesus returns!
God has given Christians His Holy Spirit to enable us to
help others receive the victory Christ has won!
Therefore, we are to "stir up the gift of God" within us!
We are to REMAIN POWERFUL until Jesus comes to
COMPLETE the victory!
The way to REMAIN POWERFUL is to EXERCISE!!
prayer, Bible study, attendance in church, and ministry to others!
Are YOU EXERCISING?
