Thanks For The Victory

Vance Havnerby Vance Havner

Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57

Observe the source of our victory – “Thanks be unto God.” The Blesser is greater than the blessing. Consider the nature of our victory – “which giveth us the victory.” It is the gift of God. “Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift.” And behold the means of our victory – “through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

It is total victory over sin, death, and the grave. It is daily victory. Every heart ought to be a “victory garden.” And it is final victory.

“This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” It does not explain the world, nor endure it, nor enjoy it – it overcomes the world. But not just any kind of faith. It must be faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, for our victory is through Him.

Every day is V-Day when our faith is in Him. And every day is Thanksgiving Day for the victory through Him.
