The Fight We’re In

20130103_This Battle We InMy latest favorite lyrics are from the bonus track ‘Arise’ from the Hillsong United Zion album (Deluxe Edition).

The fight we’re in
Has already been won

Arise
For the kingdom has come

Many of us walk around down and defeated, and while the challenges and trials of life are real, the hope and victory we have in Christ should be seen as evident fruit by how we respond to life’s troubles. The attitude in which we tackle the battle is key to how we represent Christ and His kingdom.

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57 ESV)

The only way we can show our victory in the midst of trials is through the fruit of the Holy Spirit in us, by His power. In Him we are more than conquerors and the joy of the Lord is our strength.

For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world— our faith. (1 John 5:4 ESV)

Our churches vision and mission declares this truth. Our vision is to Take Ground for Christ & His Kingdom and our mission is Drawing the Lost to Christ, the Found to Victory and Being a Resource to Others. Our heart is to impart the victorious life of Christ to those who have been found in Him and to continually pray;

Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10 ESV)

So today whatever fight you’re in, fix your eyes on the One who has won the battle for us and arise for His kingdom has come!
