EMPOWERING CHRISTIAN WOMEN: Victory Through Faith Blogger Widgets

Victory Through Faith

Monday, February 23, 2009

Since the first Sunday of this year, we (WFA.org) have been sharing in the series “Victory is Mine in 2009!” Perhaps the most important sermon in the series is this week’s concluding message, “Victory Through Faith!” Overarching everything we have shared so far, the element of our personal faith is the ultimate key to our victory!

In 1 John 5:4, we read “This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.” The early disciples recognized the need for great faith, when in Luke 17 they say to Jesus, “Increase our faith!” What was Jesus’ response to their request? He said, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.”

A careful examination of that passage demonstrates a very important point. The disciples thought they needed more faith, as they asked the Lord for an increase. But, that’s not at all what they needed. Jesus essentially tells them that if they just use what they already had, they could do miraculous things!

And that’s the exact point. The key to our victory is not to somehow get more faith. It is to use the faith we have. Victory is not found in some quantity of faith or belief in Christ. Rather, it’s in what we do with what we have and what we do for Jesus! Don’t miss this dynamic concluding message, as together we discover how we can indeed have “Victory Through Faith!”
