Who’s Winning?

A devotional by Reverend Dr. Kevin Schwamb

Before Monday night’s U.S. presidential debate was over, the news media were busy trying to predict which candidate came out the winner.  With the stakes high among undecided voters, both candidates attempted to convey their strengths while exploiting the weaknesses of their opponent.  Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump are very much aware that who’s winning now will have a big impact upon who wins the election in November.


Unlike the outcome of the presidential debates, the Bible is quite clear in its teaching on the spiritual victory secured for us at the cross.  Romans 8:37 tells us that, “…in all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”  To say that we are more than conquerors speaks of the complete victory that is ours as a result of our union and fellowship with Jesus Christ. This victory will reach its complete fulfillment when Jesus returns in His glory and power to judge the heavens and the earth.


Rather than being overly concerned about who wins the presidential debates, let’s set our thoughts on what it means to experience spiritual victory.  When we make this our goal, we will be declared the winners, not by popular vote, but by God himself!
