TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY
TOPIC:          CHURCH  MEMBER’S  VICTORIOUS  LIFE                              
TEXT:             MATT. 16:18; 1JOHN 5:4

Welcome to another moment of the study of God’s word.

After conversion, the heart cry of any believer member is Holiness, to be like Christ, to overcome sin and to live above the world. Some Christians try and try and when they don’t succeed, sink down to a lower level of Christian experience, living on a standard lower than desired. The devil does not mind a religious person but a triumphant Church member, which is possible for everyone born into the family of God. The watch word for every Christian, man or woman is VICTORY. You are born-again to be victorious. Hence we are studying today on the topic entitled: CHURCH MEMBERS VICTORIOUS LIFE.

 

1.         THE PROMISED VICTORY:2COR. 2:14; 1CORITH 15:57

Victory belongs to us and it is ours always in Christ Jesus. We are promised of:
1.         Victory over sin 1John 3:8; 9 Roman 6:14
2.         Victory over Satan, the wicked one. 1John 5:18,9, 1John 4:4
3.         Victory over every temptation. 1Cor. 10:13; James 1:13
4.         Victory over all that conquer man. Roman 8:37, 31, 32, 35.
5.         Abundant Life. John 10:10
6.         Victory over the lust of the flesh. Gal. 5:16; 1Peter 2:11

All true members of the Church have not just victory, but abundant victory over our enemies. The Christian life does not submit to the lust (will or desires) of the flesh but to overcome them.

 

2.         THE PRINCIPLES OF VICTROY: ROMAN 1:17; Gal. 3:11; Heb. 10:38, Hab. 2:4
A true Church member will live by principles based on the word of God. Matt. 4:4. The victorious Christian life is a gift from God by faith. Our salvation was a gift; we did not deserve it or earn it. Victory is also a gift, as we cannot have it in our own strength. Roman 1:17. The drunkard is converted and immediately gets victory over liquor. We have victory over “self” and pet sins. Roman 8:1-2. Faith lets God do it all. The Church member living by faith lives the victorious life by:
i)          Having a broken nature. 2 Cor. 12:9, 2 Corinth. 3:5
ii)         Trusting wholly in Christ (not trying). Mk 11:22;Ps. 125:1

  1. Identifying with Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. Roman 6:4-6, Gal. 2:20; Phil. 4:13
  2. Yielding to God. (Roman 6:13), all the time. James 4:7

 

3.         PRESCRIPTION FOR VICTORY
To be able to do these and enjoy the needed victory all the time, we must do the following:

  1. Search the scriptures. John 5:39
  2. Pray without ceasing. 1Thess 5:17
  3. Have regular days of fasting. 2 Corth. 11:27                      
  4. Never avoid fellowship (Church activities) Hebrews 10:25  
  5. Share your faith with others regularly. 2Tim4:1-2
  6. Keep thy heart. Prov. 4:23; Job 27:5,6; 1Thes. 5:22; Eph. 5:11; 4:27, 2Corinth. 2:11; 1Pet. 5:8-10

In conclusion, read these. 1Corth. 15:57. We are bound to be victorious
