“This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.” 1 Timothy 1:15-17 NKJV
This was one of the most humble exhortation of Apostle Paul, saying he was the worst of sinners and yet Christ shown him mercy and patience. To gain altitude we need a humble attitude. Christ was obedient to God all the way to the Cross at Calvary and He revealed eternal life to us at the Resurrection from the tomb by His Spirit. He was tested, tempted and trialled, yet he thrived, triumphed and trampled over all principalities and darkness. Hebrews 4:15. Therefore we shall not fear death or spiritual attacks of the devil because Christ has already won the victory.
In this season, I believe the Lord desire us to declare, "We can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13. God desire us to be overcomers and a walking testimony for His kingdom.
To God be the glory!
