Jesus Never Fails Part 1
The Bible teaches that Jesus is triumphant.
“And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” Colossians 2:15
In fact, the Father set Jesus on a throne. For the Word of God says, “He raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms…” (Ephesians 1:20).
Jesus is a King who was triumphant over sin, death and the devil. He is victorious! I believe that in these last days the Church must learn that “Jesus Never Fails!”
What happens when it seems like God is absent, uninvolved and not winning? Acts chapter 12 reveals to us two different outcomes that teach us that Jesus never fails.
As for him failing, you never dream of it – hate the thought of it. The God who has been sufficient till now, should be trusted till the end. – Charles Spurgeon
1. Jesus never fails even when it seems at times like the devil is winning.
“About that time Herod laid violent hands on some who belonged to the church. He killed James the brother of John with the sword, and when he saw that it pleased the Jews he had Peter arrested also. This was during the days of unleavened bread.” Acts 12:1-3 ESV
We must know that what has died in our lives does not have to stop us. Does the death of James mean that Jesus failed?
2. Jesus never fails even when things don’t turn out the way we want them to.
We must know that God has a purpose for everything we go through in life.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
3. Jesus never fails because His Word never fails.
We must be governed by the truth of Scripture. How can you trust someone when you think they have failed you?
“You will drink the cup I drink and be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with…” Mark 10:38-39
“In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” 2 Timothy 3:12
“In the world you will have tribulation.” John 16:33
“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.” John 10:28
