“In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.”
Many fighters inside the cage of life are tapped out simply because they fail to realize who they are in Christ. Knowing who you are in Christ is the key to victory. As an Anointed Fighter, it is important to see yourself as a champion redeemed through the blood of Jesus. Don't believe you're just an old forgiven sinner because some old trainer tells you so. Spend some time sparring with scripture and know the truth. “…Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32).
Your opponent will try to knock out the truth in your life by the over hand right of deception. If you drop your guard by not abiding in Christ, you will spend your good fighting career in bondage. If you see yourself as a failure, you will not be able to boldly exercise your champion authority in Christ because you will feel unworthy (even after the Blood of Christ has made you worthy). Don’t make this costly mistake. It is the same as denying the work of Christ in your life!
You are a champion in Christ loved by God, not because of what you've done, but because of what Jesus did on the cross.
Remember, it is called a fight for a reason. However, we fight from victory, not for victory. Keep Fighting!
