TREM Devotional 18 August 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – We Operate From A Superior Platform In Christ
TOPIC: We Operate From A Superior Platform In Christ
“For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.” Colossians 1:19-20 KJV
In Christ, you have access to God and all the blessings of your love relationship with God. Your salvation guarantees you a life of total victory whereby you are no longer subject to the devices of the enemy. If you will live the fullness of life, it is imperative that you operate from a superior platform. The Bible says in Romans 8:1-2: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death” (KJV).
Let me explain to you the meaning of the law of spirit of life in Christ Jesus: the Spirit of life raises you up, and the law of sin brings you down. When you receive Christ, He lifts you up but the law of sin and death brings you down. In aerodynamics, whatever goes up must come down. So, whenever you travel on an airplane, you overrule the law of gravity.
As long as you are operating under the law of sin and death, it will bring you down. All you need to do to overrule the law of sin and death is to be in Christ. In Christ, you function under the law of the Spirit of life. Christ is the pilot flying the airplane that overrules the effect of the law of sin and death.
We overrule the law of sin and death forever because of what Christ did- by shedding His blood as evidence that His life had been given for us. “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things” (Romans 8:32 KJV)?
