2 Corinthians 2 : 14 : “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”
Today we are gathered together in a service to celebrate Passover. In Passover, we celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus and His triumph. We also remember the love of Jesus and His death. He is our great and awesome savior, “Wonderful Savior.” Through His death on the cross and His resurrection, He has borne the sins of the world and defeated the devil – once and for all. He truly loves us. When we believe in Him and His work on the cross, our sins will be forgiven and we will experience triumph after triumph in this life.
Through Jesus’ resurrection, He reveals to the world that He is a living God – the God who listens to our prayers, the God who still performs miracles in our lives. When we truly believe in Him, we will continuously experience miracles after miracles and triumph after triumph.
In 2017, the Lord gives us this guidance: “Greater triumph, Greater Harvest.” What this means for us who believe in Jesus and the work of His cross, is that we are entering a year that is full of triumph, miracles, and great harvest.
The verse above, 2 Corinthians 2:14, is a verse for us to keep throughout 2017. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we will continue to experience triumph. And with our lives full of victory, miracles and restored, we can start diffusing the fragrance of Jesus’ name in this world. We will start to introduce Jesus to everyone we meet. We will start to be a witness, evangelize and win souls for Christ. Together with God’s church, we will enter the last harvest season in these end times.
Today, expect God’s miracles to take place in our lives. As we are in a service together, pray so that our great and awesome Savior Jesus Christ touches and visits us. Experience God’s power and greatness; experience breakthrough, victory, restoration and healing from the Lord. Believe and receive it with faith right now.
And throughout this year, prepare yourself for the ongoing harvest. The Lord Jesus will use each of us to be His tools and partners. Do not be left behind; let us take part in the last spiritual awakening that is happening across the world.
Happy Passover 2017, the Lord Jesus bless us all!
