Scripture of the Day - February 15, 2012

Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

There is more to being saved than avoiding hell... which in itself is enough! But God isn't interested in 'just enough'. He is interested in doing exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think...Christ's triumph is all encompassing. Jesus not only saved us from hell, He saved us from our sins...Matthew 1:21...He strengthens our inner person with might by His Spirit...Ephesians 3:16...and when we have faith in Christ and he dwells in our hearts and we are rooted and grounded in His love then we can get a grasp of the breadth and length and depth and height of the love of Christ, which the carnal mind cannot comprehend, and we are filled with all the fullness of God... Ephesians 3:17-19 That is POWERFUL! Read it again, slowly.

Satan is cast from his throne and no longer has dominion over us born again believers. Oh he will strive against us but he will never gain the upper hand. When you have the love of Christ in your heart, when you have the power of God ruling your life, satan has lost his stronghold in your mind. When you are sanctified to Jesus, when your life is holy unto the Lord there is a new stronghold, a powerful stronghold, that can withstand any onslaught of the enemy. Herein lies the key... Jesus saved us FROM our sins not IN our sins.
