Thought for the month – July 2015

V.E. Day

Earlier this year we celebrated V.E. day.

Victory in Europe Day, generally known as V.E. Day, was the public holiday celebrated on 8 May 1945 to mark the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender of its armed forces.

I want us to think about V.E. Day from another perspective, Victory for Everyone. It is possible for everyone to have victory over sin. We can have eternal life by putting our faith in Jesus Christ and accepting him as our personal saviour.

1 Corinthians Chapter 15 verse 55 talks about victory and says “Where, O death, is your victory? Where O death is your sting?”
We can also live victoriously with the help of the Holy Spirit by praying, reading the Bible and having fellowship with other Christians.

V.E. could also stand for Victory over the Enemy. Our enemy is Satan. As Christians we can thank the Lord that he loved us enough to die for us and that the victory in our life has been won over the enemy.

As mentioned above V.E. day was a celebration to mark the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender of its armed forces. We also need to have unconditional surrender to the Lord’s will for our life to live as victorious Christians.

As we come to camp this year may we thank the Lord for the victory he has won for us and spend time considering how best to live in his will as Christians.
