We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word.
"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death." -Revelation 12:11
To wage an almighty fight against Satan, the accuser of the brethren, requires these things. Sometimes we can become overly verbose while attempting to instruct others in their faith. We invent "how to" guides for "walking out your victorious Christian life!" John's words here have a gravity and simplicity that cannot be ignored. We overcome, first and foremost, by the blood -- Christ's blood. This points to an act on Christ's part and on our behalf that exists apart from any action of ours. Then, by the Word! Finally, by not holding too tightly to our earthly person - dying to ourselves. Help us cling to this daily that we might overcome by God's grace.
