Victory is Mine!

An East Texas school will no longer read scripture during the morning announcements. This decision comes after a formal complaint was filed with the school by the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

That organization says the practice of Biblical readings is not only offensive to non-Christians, but against the law. According to the FFRF, the decision is a win.

How sad it is when removal of Christ from society is considered a victory.

Let me share my victory!

Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Cor 15:57

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. 1 John 5:4

In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Rom 8:37

We sometimes sing a song in church:

Victory is mine,
victory is mine,
victory today is mine.

I told Satan to get thee behind,
victory today is mine.

The FFRF did not win – they lost!

Jesus said this and it may be a bit of a stretch but I think it’s appropriate,

For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Mark 8:35-36
