Victory In His Name
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him
The Lord Jesus was born to be man’s legal representative to God, so He could bear the penalty for sin on his behalf. He took upon Him the form of a servant and was made in the likeness of men (Philippians 2:7). All that He did in the cause of His earthly ministry was in man’s stead—as our substitute. Jesus knew His mission as man’s representative and took every turn to emphasize it. He referred to Himself as the “Son of man.” He wanted everyone to know He was man’s representative.
When Jesus died on the cross, we died on the cross with Him; and when He was buried we were buried, because He represented us; He died in our place, in our name. So when God raised Him up in triumph over satan and sin, in the mind of justice, we were raised up together with Him: “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:4-6).
As one who’s born again, you’ve been called into the victory-life, where you reign and rule over life’s circumstances through Christ. The life, glory and Name of Jesus now belong to you; therefore you’re to live in, and do all things in the Name of Jesus: “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”To live in the Name of Jesus is to live in victory over life’s challenges.
No demon, sickness or disease can destroy or hinder anyone who has come to apprehend the victory wrought for us through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I urge you therefore to dare believe the Word, and face your endeavours today with the mindset of a champion, knowing that you have the victory in the Name of Jesus!
I thank you for making me a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light, and for giving me the power of attorney to use and live in the Name of Jesus. I go forth today with joy, knowing that I’ve got victory in the Name of the Lord Jesus.
