Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. (Romans 6:3, 4 NIV)
As Christians we should boldly oppose satan, we should be bold in resisting His temptations. we have this boldness through the victory Jesus won on the cross. we can know in our hearts that He has defeated the grave and in the same likeness He gives us strength to defeat any trial in our life. On the day of salvation, the victory over satan was won, and our old nature was put to death. you are no longer a servant of sin but a servant of Christ, who overcame sin! we can have victory over sin because the minute we were saved, satan lost his hold on our lives. you are no longer resigned with sin, but have a new life in Christ! we all sin because we’re human but we can have victory over sin through Christ. when the devil tempts you. resist him through the victory Jesus offers and promises.
*I pray that during times of trial and tempting that I would always turn to Jesus and remember that I have strength in Him, that I have victory over sin and I can overcome any temptation that lie ahead of me.
