Mar 28 Devotion: Triumphant

2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.


I have practiced the technique of Bible study through the years of examining the words that God has chosen to describe his truth to us. I have found that inserting a definition for a word in place of the word helps me to grasp the context of the thought conveyed. Sometimes, just simply understanding why a particular word was used can put you on shouting ground. Let us look at this verse today using this technique.

“In Christ,” he “always causeth us to triumph”.

1)  “IN” is a positional word. We are in him through the baptism of the Holy Ghost whereby we were placed in who he is and what he has done for us. (1 Corinthians 12:13)

2)  “ALWAYS” is an unconditional word. It denotes how often something takes place. Always cannot mean occasionally or sometimes. It means there is no exception.

3)  “CAUSETH” is a word of action that takes place outside of our own ability. It is Christ that “causeth” us to be in a position of victory. He is the conquering warrior that has won the war; therefore, victory is placed on our account by him.

4)  “TRIUMPH” is to overcome whatever adversary has opposed you.

So, let us put it together. When we are positionally in Christ through the new birth, we are victorious through the finished work of what Christ has done. Jesus does not win occasionally but always, and it is through him that we are “more than conquerors through him that loved us.”  (Romans 8:37) He will not lose us and in him, we cannot lose. We are on the winning side. We are TRIUMPHANT in Christ. So, let us “manifest the savour of his knowledge” by being a witness to his goodness and grace to those “in every place”.

In Christ’s Service,
