CHRISTIANITY IS ABOUT OVERCOMING
It’s about refusing to turn back no matter what happens because you know only Jesus has eternal life.
We must not let ourselves be overcome by the world.
We must take up our cross daily and follow Jesus until the day He calls us to our heavenly home.
Those who turn back lose their heavenly reward.
“But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”
We must overcome the world and it’s lusts.
Jesus has overcome the world and when He lives in us and we are led by Him,we too will overcome the things of the world; temptation, discouragement,tests and everything else we meet on our journey.
Jesus is always ready to help us because He already overcame it and if we follow Him, being led by His Spirit,we will overcome.
Do not be defeated,you must overcome if you want to lay hold of eternal life.
Invest your time on spiritual things,then your heart will always be on your heavenly home and because of that it will shape your life that way.
For where your treasure is,there your heart will be also.

“And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—
He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’— as I also have received from My Father;
and I will give him the morning star.”
