  • Only the overcomers will inherit the things of God (Revelation 2:7,11,17,26; 3:5,12,21; 21:7).
  • True faith is that which overcomes the world by keeping God’s commandments (I John 5:3-5).
  • The world includes: sexual desires; the love of money, greed, financial debt; arrogance, anger, judging others; etc. (I John 2:16).
  • Jesus has set us a perfect example in overcoming the world (John 16:33).
  • The Three Laws
    1. The Law of Sin and Death (Romans 8:2, 5:12): like the law of gravity, constantly pulling us down.
    2. The Law of God (Romans 7:7-15): the rule that says that we “should not” drown; but it results in making us “want to” drown; God designed it to show us how horrible sin is.
    3. The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:2-3): like the law of flotation; through power, fulfills requirement (and some) of the Law of God; in fact, we can do anything God asks (Philippians 4:13).
  • The righteous man is not necessarily one who never falls, but one who rises up as many times as he falls with the faith to overcome (Proverbs 24:16).
  • Sin won’t be your master if you’re under grace (Romans 6:14).
  • You get power over sin through the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8).
  • Overcoming is a walk by the Spirit’s power (Galatians 5:16).
  • So, seek to be constantly filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18).
  • God gives His Holy Spirit to those who are:
    1. honest (Luke 8:15)
    2. humble (I Peter 5:5)
    3. hungry (Luke 11:5-13, 18:7-8; Matthew 5:6)
