We Are Overcomers

Good Tuesday morning to you! The Apostle John tells his audience why he was writing to them. He says:

I am writing to you, dear children,
    because your sins have been forgiven on account of his name.
13 I am writing to you, fathers,
    because you know him who is from the beginning.
I am writing to you, young men,
    because you have overcome the evil one.

14 I write to you, dear children,
    because you know the Father.
I write to you, fathers,
    because you know him who is from the beginning.
I write to you, young men,
    because you are strong,
    and the word of God lives in you,
    and you have overcome the evil one.

​ – 1 John 2:12-14 (NIV)​
Twice he says that they had overcome the evil one. We give the evil one more credit than he is due. Through Jesus Christ, we have overcome the evil one. The devil cannot defeat you if you are in Christ Jesus. The devil doesn’t make you do anything. The One living in you is greater than the one in the world. Don’t give the enemy any power over you. Jesus overcame the enemy and He has given you His victory.
