CHRIST OVERCAME THE WORLD..

 Ephesians 6:10-18

When Paul established the church at Ephesus, he wanted the believers to understand they had the power to withstand the attacks of the enemy, Satan. He wanted them to know that they could stand firm in their faith and refuse to yield to sin and thoughts of defeat. They had been given spiritual weapons more powerful and effective than the enemy’s.

But first they needed to understand they were not strong enough on their own to resist Satan’s temptations and tactics. God’s power and strength empowered them to rebuke the wiles of the devil. Paul explained to the Ephesians that they needed use weapons of spiritual warfare on a daily basis. Yes, God protected them and protects us, but every believer must daily put on the full armor of God.

Paul further explained the importance of truly committing our lives to Jesus Christ. One day, our hour of sinful behavior is a sure setup for discouragement and defeat at hands of the enemy. The power that is alive within you and me is OVERCOMING power.

One thought on “CHRIST OVERCAME THE WORLD..

  1. No more need fear, and no more need doubting,
    No more need pride control in my life.
    I may be free from all condemnation,
    I can have victory now in the strife.

    I take the life of victory,
    Not I, but Christ Himself in me;
    He conquers now, He sets me free;
    I take, He gives—the victory.
