Victory In Jesus
By June Stein
Victory over self is a battle daily fought,
Every day we live is with temptation fraught,
The evil one is subtle in his call to our self pride,
The truth of our indulgence, he loves to see denied,
He knows that we must lay self down to truly serve the Lord,
There is no sweeter victory; no other eternal reward.
To be as one with Jesus, is beyond what he can reach,
So to thwart our life in Him, our ego he’ll beseech,
But our victory in Christ is sure; He will not let us go,
As we cling to Him, alone, the fortress of our faith we know.
Christ’s coming is drawing ever nearer,
The work of Satan is ever clearer,
Thanks be to God, we have no fear,
Our conquering Lord is drawing near!
‘…clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for
God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.’
[1 Peter 5:5]
