I Am an Over Comer



1 John 4: 4, 16 – “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them; because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of Go, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.”

Through Jesus Christ we are over comers not only of the adversary but sin itself. We live in a fallen world and sin is rampant. We encounter sin daily. Not just our sin but the sin of others. As believers we are to rely on the love of God to help us in all of our tasks. How often do we ignore Jesus and let sin overtake us? How sad for those who are without Jesus Christ in their life, they are without hope.

As believers we are over comers of this world and we are stronger with Jesus by our side than any fire breathing dragon we will ever face. My favorite t-shirt has the word “Stronger” across the back and when I wear this shirt someone always stops and tells me they like the shirt. This always opens up the highway for a conversation about what Jesus has done for me to make me “Stronger’.

I pray today Lord that you will bring someone across my path who I can share the love of Jesus with. I don’t need a t-shirt I just need a willing heart.
