Victory

Is Victory the Word you would use to define
your experience?
Perhaps not victory, but a different
WORD would better describe your appearance?
If left to ourselves our identity is
treacherous.
 
The words which describe who we are
can sound
so perilous.
Words Like:
Religious.
Stingy
Angry
Or Anxious
Self ­ Reliant
Lazy
Haphazard
Or Pretentious.
What would give us the guts or the
courage to define our identity in a word
like Victory.
When, if we look to our selves the
best word might be filthy.
____
In the beginning was the WORD.
The Bible says
The Word dwelt among us
Gods Word in the form of humanity
lived with us.
The Word, is Jesus.
Wholly man. Wholly Divine.
Fully. human. Completely God.
He Lived a life as a servant among us
Died a death, as a sinner, that
wasn’t Glorious
Raised to life, as a king, so you and
I could be Victorious.
Victorious.
His history becomes our history
Our righteousness not from ourselves
but caught up in mystery.
Now we have a new Word for our identity.
And the word that describes those in
him. (Pause)
You and me.
That word is victory.
 
O victory in Jesus,
My Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me before I even knew Him
And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory,
Beneath the cleansing flood.
