The New You: Overcomer
Romans 8:31-32, 35, 37
In Christ there is a New You!
When you know who you are, you’ll know what to do
If anyone is in Christ he or she is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come! II Cor 5:17 (NIV),
With Christ, you are an overcomer
…If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? …. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? … Romans 8:31-32,35 (NIV)
.37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8: 37 (NIV)
hupernikao – to gain a decisive victory, exceedingly more than a conqueror
….In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NIV)
They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony Revelation 12:11 (NIV)
As an Overcomer
You will fight with conquering attitudes!
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 (NIV)
In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall. Psalm 18:29 (NLT)
You will fight with supernatural weapons!
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (NIV)
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:7-9 (NIV)
4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 (NIV)
Through the power of Jesus Christ you are an overcomer!
