‘You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.’
- The Lord wants His light to shine through us into a broken and dark world. - The light of God in you makes you different. - Light brings with it the warmth and the hope of all that is longed for. - Be a beacon of light and bring hope and joy to others around you.
Prayer: Lord, may my life be one of purpose and destiny, as I reflect and shine Your light into the world around me. Cause me to be a beacon of hope, a lighthouse of protection, and a source of comfort to others. Amen.

How Do We Overcome?
August 23, 2019
HOW DO WE OVERCOME?
1. Through being connected to God.
It is His plan for us to live a life of overcoming. This is living on top.
Galatians 2:20 ‘It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.’
When this happens we can experience a lifestyle of overcoming. How does Christ live in you and me?
2. By His Spirit.
Ephesians 3:16 ‘May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the Holy Spirit’ (Himself indwelling your inner most being and personality)
3. We overcome because we have got God inside of us and because of the power of the blood of Jesus.
Revelation 12:11 ‘They overcame by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony.’
4. Not in your own strength.
Philippians 2:13 ‘(not in your own strength) for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you.’
5. Another tool for overcoming is our faith.
1 John 5:4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
