They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
(Revelation 12:11 (NIV))
Do you have what it will take to triumph over the enemy?
Are you willing to do what it takes to find eternal life?
For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.
(Matthew 16:25 (NIV))
If you truly stop to think about those two questions, there really isn’t any difference in what it takes to triumph over the enemy and what it takes to find eternal life. Both require placing your faith and trust in the blood of the Lamb. They require trusting Jesus completely with all aspects of your life, no matter what the world may do to you.
Do you trust Jesus completely?
Is your faith strong enough to lay down your life if necessary?
Jesus did it for you! Jesus did it for me!
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
(John 15:13 (NIV))
Jesus calls you and I friends. He laid down His life for us in faith that we would be able to accept His gift of grace and mercy. Have we taken this gift to heart and can we truly claim that we triumph over the enemy by His blood? Do we love this life or do we long to be with Him?
Are you truly triumphant?
