Be an Overcomer

Posted in Leadership by Benham Brothers | May 5th, 2014

As Jason and I flew to Dallas last night to be on the Glen Beck Show, we talked about the direction we wanted to go with the media from here – now mountain climbersthat the circus is dying down a bit.  And our final conclusion was that we need to simply continue to strive to be a living testimony of Christ’s love & truth.

So I woke up this morning and a devotional was sitting in my inbox – it’s crazy how God answers prayer, even when we don’t pray it!  In it the author stated, “If we overcome our enemies we are conquerors, but if we win our enemies over to God’s truth by Christ’s love in us we become more than conquerors.” (Referencing Romans 8:37).

This is the key!  We are to be MORE than conquerors through Christ’s love…not just conquerors of another man’s viewpoint.  So what is it that we are conquering?

Looking into the bible we see our target: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” – Ephesians 6:12

Satan has incredible power over mankind and wages war against good, but he does not have ultimate power.  Jesus has the ultimate power over Satan, and He is the one that sets individuals & nations free from his grasp.  And His battle strategy?…His abounding love…which leads to truth…which sets us free.​

Jason and I are compelled today to use Christ’s supreme weapon of unconditional love to overcome Satan’s strongholds in this nation!  Will you join us?
