How many people do you know who have been overcome by the world? How many believers do you know who are in just as much bondage as their unbelieving friends? Have you ever taken an honest look at your own failures and frustrations? The enemy of our soul is clever; his global warfare is effective. He has the greater populace on the broad road to destruction, and sad but true, he has influenced the church to head down the same path. Christian, do you understand that the world is your enemy? If you don't overcome the world, the world will overcome you. But there is hope - Jesus has overcome the world! And every born again believer has all the potential for victory over the world because the Victor, the Lord Jesus Christ lives within them. But this is not automatic - it must be accessed by faith. This is the victory that overcomes the world - even our faith.
