WE WON, WE WON


British writer Guy King stood stood on a railroad station platform, a train pulled into the station. Members of a soccer team returning from a game got off. News had not yet reached home as to the outcome of the game. A small boy wiggled his way through the crowd and asked one of the players the score. As soon as he heard it, he ran excitedly up and down the platform shouting, "We won! We won!" That youngster was brimming with joy because he identified himself with the players. Their victory was his victory, because he has chosen to identify with the team. 

As Christians, each sorrow or challenging problems facing our life has been dealt with in Christ on the cross of Calvary. Our conscious recognition of this mysterious reality coupled with total surrender and identification with Jesus Christ will on daily basis usher into our life victories on all side and from every situations. 

HE BORE EVERYTHING ON OUR BEHALF 

Isaiah 53:4-8 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

  • He took our grief, 
  • He carried our present sorrows in His body, 
  • Our affliction was upon him, 
  • Our transgressions and iniquities (sins) was laid on him, 
  • He was chastised, that we may not be chastised. 
  • He took our oppression upon him. 
  • He went to prison and was judged that we may not be judged. etc.

HE DEFEATED THE DEVIL, OUR ENEMY AND LED US INTO A TRIUMPHANT PROCESSION. 


Colossians 2:13-15 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; [And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. 
But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ's victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere,

We can therefore participate in a great celebration because Jesus won the victory over the devil, his cohorts and sin nearly 2000 years ago. He paid sin's penalty by dying on the cross, and He broke its power by rising from the dead. We share in His victory through faith because "as He is, so are we in this world" (1 Jn. 4:17). 

Victory, not defeat, is therefore the norm in the Christian life. God sees every believer as being in Christ, whom He raised from the dead and seated "at His right hand. . ., far above all principality and power" (Eph. 1:20-21). Because He is the Victor and we are "in Him," we too can be victorious over sin. -Paul Van Gorder 

Each conflict into which you come Was won on Calvary,"Tis ours to claim what Christ has doneAnd hold the victory. -Jessop
We are more than conqueror through Jesus Christ our Lord. Nevertheless, it requires our conscious recognition and totally submission to Jesus Christ our Lord.
Praise God.
