Overcome the World Through Christ!

Our Lord Jesus said, “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) That is, though believers shall be persecuted in this world, yet, through faith in Jesus Christ they shall overcome the world. So then, “When the world puts its iron chains upon the believer’s legs, then God puts His golden chains about their necks! When the world puts a bitter cup into the hands of believers, then God drops some of His honey, some of His goodness and sweetness into it. And when the world is tearing down the Christian’s good name, then God gives them a new name, that none knows but he who has it, a name that is better than that of sons and daughters.” ~ Thomas Brooks
