Christ There is Victory
be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1
Christ has power from His Father to give
His divine grace and strength to man, making it possible for him through His
name to overcome. . . .
All are personally exposed to the
temptations that Christ overcame, but strength is provided for them in the
all-powerful name of the great Conqueror. And all must, for themselves,
He knows every trial and sorrow of
childhood and youth. He was once just your age. The temptations and trials
which come to you came also to Him. The sorrows which come to you came to Him.
But He was never overcome by temptation. His life held nothing that was not
pure and noble. He is your helper, your Redeemer.
His heart of divine love and sympathy is
drawn out most of all for the one who is the most hopelessly entangled in the
snares of the enemy. With His own blood He has signed the emancipation papers
of the race.
Jesus does not desire those who have been
purchased at such a cost to become the sport of the enemy's temptations. He
does not desire us to be overcome and perish. He who curbed the lions in their
den and walked with His faithful witnesses amid the fiery flames is just as
ready to work in our behalf, to subdue every evil in our nature. Today He is
standing at the altar of mercy, presenting before God the prayers of those who
desire His help. He turns no weeping, contrite one away. . . . The souls that
turn to Him for refuge, Jesus lifts above the accusing and the strife of
tongues. No man or evil angel can impeach these souls. Christ unites them to
His own divine-human nature.
