Victorious Living in Four Words – Teaching

by Eddie Lawrence

INSTRUCTIONS: Use the headings below and the Scriptures underneath to teach people that we live in victory by understanding that we must first come to Jesus and learn how to rest in Him. Then we let the Holy Spirit teach us all the things God has for us and we receive them by faith. Afterwards, we learn to release what we have received to others. And lastly of course, we need to understand that there will be warfare against our unseen enemy. We resist in the faith. How? By submitting to God.
 
1. RESTING - Jesus invites us to come to him and he will give us rest. He finished the work of salvation for us and is now seated at Father's right hand. This is also where we are seated. We do what we do now from the place of rest. We are to cease from striving and struggling to get what we already have been given. We learn from Jesus to work from the place of rest. We work because we are sons not to become sons.
 
Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Hebrews 4: 9 There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. 10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.

2. RECEIVING - One of the blessings of the Holy Spirit whom we have received through Christ is that He makes known to us all the things that have been freely given to us through Christ. He shows us our benefits so we can live in those benefits and from those benefits. These benefits are for our benefit. We receive them through faith from Christ.
 
1 Corinthians 2: 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
 
Colossians 2:6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
 
3. RELEASING - Freely we have received, freely we give. We have the authority in Christ to release the kingdom and see the works of Jesus continued in the earth. We are able from our seated position in Christ to see the will of God in Heaven released into the realm of Earth. If we do not know how to rest and receive we will not be very good at releasing.
 
Matthew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead,[c] cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
 
4. RESISTING - Part of living in victory is found in submitting to God and resisting the enemy. The enemy is not to set the agenda or lead us. The Holy Spirit leads us and when the enemy interferes, we submit to God and resist Him staying the course in following the leadership of the Holy Spirit and living as Jesus lived.  
 
1 Peter 5: 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 
 
James 4:7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

    More power from on high Brother!
    You are indeed doing a good job for the Lord sharing your knowledge to other – like me so that they too will spread the message of salvation to our folks and the outsiders. you also shared the reward of our labor in the ministry.
    God bless you.
