What is Christian Victory?

Plodcast 210: God’s Path to Victory https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTVEOyqnbk8

Matthew Henry Commentary Hebrews 12: https://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/matthew-henry-complete/hebrews/12.html

  • “We want our blessings from God like we get coffee from a drive through coffee joint – we want it hot and we want it now.” – Douglas Wilson

  • “God’s path to victory is no fun. We need to know it’s not suppose to be fun, which in fact, makes it fun.”

  • “Baskets of fruit are heavy.”

  • No discipline seems pleasant at the time.

  • As soon as we understand how tough it’s going to be, we know it will be WORTH WHILE.

  • The difficulty is worth it because there IS victory.

  • God arranged it this way for a reason.

  • We should not misapply a culture of instant gratification to the Lord.

  • God uses hardships and labor and trials on the path to victory.

    • to make us holy

    • to show His glory

    • to produce a peaceable fruit of righteousness

So what does Christian victory look like?


Conformity to Christ.

And a growing strength to not grow weary and lose heart.
