The Matters of the Heart

Victors! More than Conquerors! That’s what the Bible says we are. I know you’ve heard that many times before, but today I want you to let the reality of it really sink in. I want you to spend some time meditating about what those terms actually mean.

The dictionary says that victory means “final and complete supremacy or superiority in battle or war, success in any contest or struggling involving the defeat of an opponent or the overcoming of obstacles.”

To conquer means “to get the better of in competition or struggle, to master, suppress, prevail over, overwhelm, surmount, to gain superiority, to subdue, to vanquish, to crush, to defeat.”

Once you get those definitions firmly in mind, you’ll realize in Jesus you’ve gotten much more than a ticket to heaven. You’ve got the best of the world you’re living in now. Through Him, you’ve overcome it, mastered it, suppressed it, and prevailed over it.

No wonder 1 Corinthians 15:57 shouts, “Thanks be to God! Because He gives us the victory, making us conquerors through our Lord Jesus Christ!”

Why don’t you shout too! Shout thanks to God today for making you an overcomer. Praise Him that you are joined up with the One who has conquered the world, the flesh, and the devil. Shout hallelujah and enjoy the victory!

The Matters of the Heart

COMPASSION. That’s the one thing people need more than anything else in this world. They need someone to reach out to them with the compassion of God.

Jesus has sent YOU to reach out and touch a love-starved world with HIS compassion.

The Matters of the Heart

MATTERS OF THE HEART… The scripture “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” is alive and doing very well. It does not matter what your title is, this is to us all.

Treat people the way you want to be treated. Reaping what you have sown will either be an elephant size pill or a delicious bowl of vanilla ice cream.

Be very careful how you treat people because it’s coming back to you.
