Triumph, Always!

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the fragrance of his knowledge by us in every place.

In ancient Rome, a Triumph was literally a victory parade reserved for conquering generals. A Triumph was only authorized for occasions of complete victory, not only for successful campaigns or for putting down an insurgency.

As a Roman, the Apostle Paul had this in mind when he wrote, “Now thanks be unto God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ God "always causes us to triumph in Christ.” The important difference with us as believers is this: We don't celebrate conquering others. We celebrate overcoming circumstances, fulfilling God's purposes, and living out what Jesus has already accomplished for us!

What's more, is that we don't wait to triumph or celebrate until AFTER we see the victory, we do it BEFORE and DURING the challenges because we have faith that God through Jesus Christ is faithful to bring us through!
