Conquered through the blood of the lamb

Revelation 12:11: “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.”

People have various misconceptions regarding what conquering and triumphing is all about. And they often justify all means to achieve their end. I do not agree to the idea. Real victory is over evil and your selfishness. You win against the spiritual enemies first. And you do it by believing in the blood of the lamb: Jesus Christ. That’s what real spiritual victory is all about.

Love of money

1 Timothy 6:10: “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many grieves.”

Loving is placing your heart somewhere where you see great importance and valuing those things (or thing) above else. When things become dear we get become guilty of the sin of greed. God does not like it. He has always been ready to sacrifice things in order to show his love for us. And so should we. Let us put him, his word and his people above things and the thing that most of us care much about: money. Let God helps us in this pursuit of ours.
