What does it mean to live a “victorious Christian life”?

1 John 5:4For every child of God defeats this evil world by trusting Christ to give the victory.

Genesis 4:7You will be accepted if you respond in the right way . . .

Responding to God’s invitation to follow him by believing that his way is the right way and trusting that he will guide you to the best future leads to victorious living.

Romans 7:21-2521I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong.22 I love God’s law with all my heart.23 But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me.24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Because Jesus lived without sin, died for you and rose from death, he can guarantee you ultimate victory over death when you claim allegiance to him.

Ephesians 6:10-18Put on all of God’s armor . . .

God equips you with all the spiritual weapons you need to defeat Satan and temptation.

1 Corinthians 9:24-27So I run straight to the goal with purpose in every step . . .

To experience daily victories in the difficult struggles of life, you must be willing to commit yourself to vigorous spiritual training and preparation.

Romans 8:37overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

1 Corinthians 15:57How we thank God, who gives us victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Psalm 98:1-3The Lord has announced his victory and has revealed his righteousness to every nation!

Revelation 12:10-1110 Then I heard a loud voice shouting across the heavens, “It has come at last— salvation and power and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown down to earth— the one who accuses them before our God day and night.11 And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.

Your greatest victory is ultimately conquering death to live for eternity. Only through Jesus can you achieve this victory.
