About the Book
Today, many believe the gospel is nothing more than the basics of Christianity – the first of many steps toward a victorious life of joy. The gospel of Christ is believed, accepted, and then laid aside as the believer searches for the abundant life.
Do you remember the joy you felt when Jesus first saved you from your sin? Before you knew it, ministry programs, self-help principles, and moral mandates drew you away from the very gospel that first captivated you. Since then you have struggled to recapture that victory for living.
Far too many believers experience this loss of vitality in their spiritual lives. In fact, this decline is so common that many say a declining passion is to be expected as a Christian matures!
Even worse, because of our inept view of the gospel, many non-believers disregard the Bible’s evidences of salvation, joining the millions of unfulfilled believers in a fruitless search for peace.
In Reclaiming Victory: Living in The Gospel, author Jason R. Velotta dispels the idea that salvation is just the doorway on the road toward victorious living. With an informative yet captivating style, Reclaiming Victory brings God’s Word to the forefront, showing that the gospel itself is the victorious Christian life!
Believers will find that the life of fulfillment is waiting at Calvary, exactly where we left it. Disregard the “recovery” mindset, which has led to helplessness and apathy, for the gospel is not just the door to salvation…It is the source of the victorious Christian life!
Your Savior is waiting…your fulfillment has always been in Him…Victory is already yours!
About the Author
Jason Velotta is the Associate (Worship / Youth) Pastor serving at Christ Church in Brownsville, TN. Growing up in aChristian home, Jason made a profession of faith early in life. However, the fruits and conviction of the Holy Spirit were absent for much of Jason's teenage and young adult life. Searching for fulfillment in music, Jason spent most of his young life playing the guitar in rock bands around Memphis and Jackson, TN. The lifestyle that accompanied Jason's career choice quickly degenerated into a destructive pattern.
Realizing the futility of that lifestyle, Jason left that life and returned to the church, "re-dedicating" himself to God. After years in the Church, it became clear that he had simply traded an overtly sinful lifestyle for a religious one. In 2003, the Holy Spirit convicted Jason of his sin and revealed the fact that he was just as lost on the Church pew as he had been playing in the clubs of Beale Street.
Jesus saved Jason in 2003 and called him to the ministry two short years later. Since then, Jason has earned master's degrees in ministry, biblical studies, a divinity from Temple Baptist Seminary and is currently pursuing a doctorate in applied theology. He currently resides in Tennessee with his wife Dana, and their three children, Jacob, Jesse, and Sophie.
