The One Who Conquers
The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. (Revelation 3:21 ESV)
Jesus conquered sin and judgement for us and mercy triumphs over judgement. However, we are also expected to conquer by the help and grace of God. That is why we have the Holy Spirit our helper and the Spirit of grace. He is the one that will help us climb every mountain until we arrive at the mountain top of Christian Maturity.
And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals. ” (Revelation 5:5 ESV)
Some believers act like they do not have to do anything because Jesus did it all. Jesus did not do it all for us to be lazy and idle. We must fight the good fight of faith and the only way to fight is on our knees. Jesus defeated the devil for us so that we will be victorious in war. Jesus is a warrior and we are called to be warriors not wimps. We must be like our father and brother Jesus.
No more excuses precious breathen, rise up like warriors with the help and grace of God until you overcome. We are called to be mature, victorious and blameless and it is possible by the grace of God, your desire and prayer.
May He who started a good work in us complete it in Jesus name. Amen.
