“When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death is your victory? Where, O death is your sting?”
1 Corinthians 15:54-55
Does Jesus care what robe we wear when walking to the cage of life? Apparently so. In Christ, we are champions and thus we must wear the champions robe. Let’s look at what the Bible has to say about this robe.
“Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature” (Romans 13:14).
“You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ” (Galatians 3:26-27).
This champions robe looks nothing like the robe worn by your opponent. This robe shine likes the sun. This robe can only be seen through spiritual eyes. However, the moment we put it on, all heaven rejoices. This robe cannot be earned; it is a gift from God. Listen to the words of Isaiah;
“I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels” (Isaiah 61:10).
We are champions in Christ. We walk, talk, and dress the part when being led by the spirit.
Remember, it is called a fight for a reason. However, we fight from victory, not for victory. Keep Fighting!
