Verse of the day
Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
When Jesus won us the victory with His death and resurrection, it was an evident triumph; none of it was hidden. He made an open spectacle for everyone to see. No sincere one could deny the reality of His death or the power of His resurrection. In the same way, none of us can deny the evidence of these in our lives.
When Jesus comes into our lives, there is an open display through us, of the victory He brings. Our life in God is not a hidden or obscure thing, neither is it forced into the open. However, as we rest in the victory that Christ has won, it reflects in our entire being.
The victory of Jesus makes a mockery of addictions, traditions stored up in our souls, belief systems, religion, sicknesses etc. and it opens us up to live a life where Christ is fully expressed through us. It is the open miracle of the triumph of Jesus in our lives that others see when they see Jesus in us. When they see Jesus in us, they do not see our forced conduct – for those would so greatly fall short of representing the perfect image of Christ. They do not see our personal attempts at showing Jesus to the world. Rather, when they see Jesus in us, what they see is a life totally resigned to receiving all that Jesus has won for us in His triumph in death, resurrection, and endless life, such that in our resignation to Him, He finds expression in us. When this happens, He becomes evident in our words, our actions, our approach to life and daily living.

There’s no obscurity to the life of God in me. The victory of Christ for me is evident in my approach to life and daily living.
