LESSON 24: THE MAKING OF A CHAMPION

MEMORY VERSE: “He raiseth up the poor of the dust, and lifeth

up the begger from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and

to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth

are the Lord’s and he hath set the world upon them.

BIBLE PASSAGE: Jeremiah 51:20-23

INTRODUCTION:

A champion is the victor, the one winning, the overcomer. A

Champion is also the representative of the people. He is the best

the people can offer (1Samuel 9:1-2; 17:48-51). He is excellent.

The greatest champion in history is no other person than the Lord

Jesus Christ (Isaiah 9:6).

2. JESUS THE GREATEST CHAMPION

BIBLICAL EXAMPLES OF CHAMPIONS

Gideon, the least from the poorest family in Manasseh, became a

great man of velour (Judges 6:15-16; 7:2-7, 22). A timid and

weak Joshua was changed to a strong and courageous man, who

led the children of Israel into the Promised Land (Joshua 1:6-7;

11:16-18). Jephtah, the son of a prostitute, who was hated and

driven out of his father’s house, later become a chosen head and

commander (Judges 11:1; 7-8,11). Saul, a Benjamite of no

reputation was chosen by God as the first king of Israel (1

Samuel 9:1-2). Davis, an unknown and abandoned shepherd boy

defeated Goliath and reigned as king in place of Saul (1 Samuel

17:11-12, 50-51). Esther, an orphan, was not only made a queen

but was also used by God to deliver the Jews from total

destruction and annihilation (Esther 2:7, 17; 8:8).

JESUS THE GREATEST CHAMPION

Jesus engaged the greatest enemy of mankind-Satan, in battle

and defeated him (Genesis 3:15; Hebrews 2:14-15). He

established victory over sin (1 Corinthians 15:56-57; Romans

8:3), He overcame the world (John 16:33). He swallowed death in

victory (1 Corinthians 15:54). He won your battles for you

because any battle you are facing now is a fall out of His battle

with Satan (Romans 8:31-37).

God can raise you out of dunghill into the class of princes or

princesses. This is a change of level that makes you a champion

also.

CONCLUSION

If you are struggling with flesh, sin, host of darkness, etc. yield

your life to the greatest champion and He will make you a
