“We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because His heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be His, He endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!” – Hebrews 12:2 TPT
Life here on earth is temporary, life in Christ is the beginning of eternal life, an eternal life that has been modeled by Jesus, a life of a perpetual victory parade (2 Corinthians 2:14). This life is full of every good thing that you could ever desire or wish for and it has been freely given to us. So why are we not living in victory? Or why does it feel like such a struggle? The devil, the world, and the flesh are hell-bent on distracting and taking us out of this newfound life. This battle has been there since time immemorial, it goes back to the garden of Eden. We have to fight for this life, it belongs to us, it’s been given to us, the good news is, we’ve been given everything we need for us to conquer (2 Peter 1:3).
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”(II Corinthians 3:18). We become what we focus on, we’ve been called to fix our eyes on Jesus and the things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father in a place of victory (. He is our life source, we cannot do it without Him. We ought to be growing, and dare I say, daily and being transformed into His image from glory to glory, and winning the battle against those 3 foes daily. There is a joy that is set before us, let that be our focus because everything else will pass away and when it’s all said and done, it’s all about Jesus!
