Sold Out For Jesus daily devotion online
G. John White's first devotional Sold out for Jesus covers 12 vital themes of Christianity.
1 Corinthians 15:54
DEATH HAS BEEN SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY
Yes, that moment we have been yearning for.
The time when the final fear is finally conquered forever. Did you notice that it is a promise? Not, death will be swallowed up in victory - but death HAS BEEN swallowed up in victory.
Hey, what a prospect! It will happen. This is not utopia or a pipe dream - THIS IS REALITY. God has promised - it shall be done! This life is not all there is - it is not the be all and end all of our existence.
When you become a child of God, you receive as a gift, eternal life. It starts straight away - not just when you die - and at that moment of adoption as a child of God - the Lord gives us His guarantee - His Holy Spirit, who being eternal starts our eternal life.
Yes, our bodies, the vehicles in which we travel around, are subject to age and decay, but don't get disheartened or despondent - we have the life of God in our souls. The real you doesn't die - it gradually gets more and more released until one day it is so released it leaves your body!
As we read yesterday, the trumpet will sound and then suddenly we will be changed. We will be fully released into that resurrection body which is not subject to age or decay. Nor is it subject to death, for at that very moment death is swallowed up in victory.
That's God's promise to you and me.
Are you ready for the change? Are you ready for that final beautiful release? If not, then get ready by allowing the Holy Spirit more and more authority in your life.
Victory is sure - Jesus has already secured it.
We have the privilege of being there to see it!
Keep your eyes open - watching!
