Overcoming the World

Oct 31, 2021    Jim Meyers

Main point: True victory is defined by God, discovered in the gospel, and demonstrated by Jesus.

V1a & 5 Faith
‘Believing that Jesus is the Christ, believing that Jesus is the Son of God’
Victory is about surrender, not control

V1b & 4 Rebirth
‘Born of God’
Victory is about humility, not pride

V2-3 Love & Obedience
Loving God, loving others and obeying His command which aren’t burdensome
Victory is about God’s glory, not our own

Example of Jesus ‘triumphal’ entry into Jerusalem
