Victims or Victors
I have noticed that it is a lot easier to be a victim and be the center of attention than it is to overcome and be a victor. Being a victim is looking at the problems as insurmountable. All humans have problems in life. You have a choice. Are you going to be a victim or a victor? A s Christian we need to understand that we are victors through Christ Jesus. In Romans 8:37-39 Paul says, "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Some questions to consider:
What can we do to remind ourselves to be victors? Does the Church have a role in helping each other in each other remember that we are victors instead of victoms? By not addressing problems do we inable people be victims instead of victors? If you have made the choice to be a victim how can you change and become a victor? Why is it so easy to be a victim instead of victor?
