TRIUMPHANT LIVING

2 CORINTHIANS 2: 12-14

TROAS WAS A COASTAL CITY IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE PROVINCE OF ASIA. PAUL WENT THERE AFTER A RIOT IN EPHESUS (ACTS CHAPTER 19) ON HIS WAY TO MACEDONIA (ACTS CHAPTER 20). HE DID NOT FIND HIS FELLOW BROTHER, TITUS, AND CONTINUED HIS MACEDONIAN JOURNEY. HE WAS CONCERNED FOR TITUS BUT CHOSE TO MOVE ON.

PAUL WAS INTERESTED IS SPREADING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST WHEREVER GOD OPENED THE DOORS. HIS STOPPING IN TROAS LEADS YOU TO BELIEVE HE WAS NOT A “ONE MAN SHOW”. TEAM EFFORT CAN BE EFFECTIVE!

PAUL USES THE ROMAN GOVERNMENT AND ITS MASSIVE MILITARY FORCE TO MAKE A POINT. THE ROMANS WERE NOTORIOUS FOR STAGING SPECTACULAR EVENTS WHETHER IN THE STREETS OR IN A COLISEUM.

COLOSSIANS 2:15 “HAVING DISARMED PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS, HE MADE A PUBLIC SPECTACLE OF THEM, TRIUMPHING OVER THEM IN IT.” (NKJV)

A CHRISTIAN MUST RECOGNIZE CHRIST AS HIS LEADER. HE WILL LEAD YOU TO TRIUMPHANT LIVING IF YOU ALLOW HIM TO DO SO.

SONG OF SOLOMON 1: 3 “BECAUSE OF THE FRAGRANCE OF YOUR GOOD OINTMENTS, YOUR NAME (IS) OINTMENT POURED FORTH; THEREFORE THE VIRGINS LOVE YOU.” (NKJV)

EPHESIANS 5: “AND WALK IN LOVE, AS CHRIST ALSO HAS LOVED US AND GIVEN HIMSELF FOR US, AN OFFERING AND A SACRIFICE TO GOD FOR A SWEET-SMELLING AROMA.” (MLKV)

APPLICATION: TRIUMPH LIVING IN CHRIST PRODUCES A SWEET AROMA!
