You Want to Be an Overcomer - 1 John 4:1-6
If you believe everything you hear, you’re headed for big problems. Especially when it comes to your spiritual beliefs. Be warned – lies and errors can and will show up, even within the church. It’s no wonder it’s important to God that His children be wise and discerning, not gullible.
God wants us to be overcomers. Like victorious athletes or warriors, an overcomer pleases God now, and one day will be generously rewarded by the Lord in Heaven. While we are not guaranteed victory over the enemy in every situation as long as we are in this world, the probability of victory will increase if we take to heart today’s “overcomer challenge” based on the biblical teaching found in 1 John 4.
