A Family Of Champions

A Family Of Champions

 

         

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named

(Ephesians 3:14-15).

 

Every Christian belongs in God’s family; and it’s a family of Champions, for we’re champions from Zion. The eleventh chapter of the book of Hebrews gives us an incisive chronicle of the acts of faith by some of the members of our family. These great men of old became champions in life, accomplishing phenomenal victories by faith.

 

Their faith serves as an example for us today, and their deeds were written for our inspiration and edification; letting us know we can do the same. Let’s for instance consider the attitude of one of these great champions from our family—Caleb. He was so full of faith that at age eighty-five, when he ought to have retired from active service, said to Joshua, “Remember forty years ago, God made a promise through Moses to give me Hebron? Give me Hebron now and I will drive out the giants” (Joshua 14:10-12).

 

The fifteenth chapter of the book of Joshua tells us how he drove out the giants from Hebron without requesting help from the army of Israel. All Caleb needed was the assurance that God was with him. That’s the mentality we ought to have always, because we are born into this great family of faith-heroes. 

 

        The Bible admonishes us to be “followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises” (Hebrews 6:12). This refers to those who, through faith faced and overcame adverse circumstances. They transcended the world of their time and subdued it. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, the prophets of old, the Lord Jesus Christ and the apostles—these are champions from our Kingdom; they’ve all set for us examples of faith to emulate.

 

Confession

 

I thank you Father for the great things you’ll accomplish through me today, because my faith is strong and unwavering. I have overcome the systems of this world; therefore I refuse to be bound by the limitations that exist in the world. My life is upward and forward because I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Glory to God!
