Christian's Victory Over Sin

Selected

Strength for a Christian's victory over sin has been
provided through the death of Christ. We have assurance that "the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet”.

Romans 16:20: And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.


But such personal victory depends on our will to offer resistance to Satan's temptations.

Ephesians 4:25-27: 25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 Neither give place to the devil.

1 Peter 5:8-9: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.


To help Christians win this battle against Satan, God has provided the power of Christ's blood,

Revelation 12:11: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death


The continuing prayer of Christ in heaven for believers,

Hebrews 7:25: Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them


The leading of the Holy Spirit,

Galatians 5:16: This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh


And various weapons for spiritual warfare.

Ephesians 6:13-18: 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;




"...upon this rock I will build My church..." Matt.16:18
