Message for October 23, 2021 from Pastor Shirley

But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.  2 Corinthians 2:14 Paul tells that our triumph comes from what God did in Christ.    When we accepted Jesus Christ we were united with him. We now identify with Him.  Everything God did in Christ He did it for us. He made it our victory also. The beginning of victory is to see yourself the way God sees you in Christ.                                                    
Life is a journey taken one step at a time.  At times it may feel like a marathon but really to get anywhere we put one foot forward.  In this journey called life we who are children of God are Christ’s aroma in the earth. Romans 8:37 says that “In all things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us” 
Paul is saying that; we “are” more than conquerors…“present tense, active situation” in other words, Christians “keep on winning a glorious victory.”  The fact is that even when all of life is against us, we are still “more than conquerors” and God will strengthen us to live out that glorious victory every day, in spite of how things look to us, or how we feel about our circumstances
But thanks be to God! For through what Christ has done, he has triumphed over us so that now wherever we go he uses us to tell others about the Lord and to spread the Gospel like a sweet perfume giving aroma. 
No matter the situations you may be facing, no matter what the enemy throws in; your path.  One thing I am confident of is the fact that Jeus leads us in triumph.  Remember this death on the cross is what brought our victory-the grave could not keep Him-death could not hold him-He rose up a victor from this place.  And because Jesus wins you win.  Don’t give up now!
