I JOHN 5:4

“FOR WHATEVER IS BORN OF GOD OVERCOMES THE WORLD; AND THIS IS THE VICTORY THAT HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD–OUR FAITH.”

Faith is the victory that has overcome the world.  What is faith?  It is believing Jesus is who He says He is and can do what He says He can do.  We can do nothing if we remain dead in our sins.  Dead people don’t get much done.

Rather, be born again.  That is how  we get the victory.  We overcome by putting on the armor of God,  and by taking up the offense which is the Word of God.

I will make occasional quotes from a book I came across of my grandmother, Ruby Robinson Wise, “Loyal Responses,” hymns by Frances Ridley Havergal.

“Here we offer and present unto Thee, O Lord, ourselves, our souls and bodies, to be a reasonable, hoy, and lively sacrifice to Thee.”

prov 20 v 27 woman bible praying

“Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee.

Take my moments and my days; let them flow in ceaseless praise.

Take my hands, and let them move at the impulse of Thy love.

Take my feet, and let them be swift and ‘beautiful’ for Thee.

Take my voice, and let me sing always, only, for my King.

Take my lips, and let them be filled with messages from Thee.

Take my silver and my gold; not a mite would I withhold.

Take my intellect, and use every power as Thou shalt choose.

Take my will, and make it Thine; it shall be no longer mine.

Take my heart, it is Thine own; it shall be Thy royal throne.

Take my love; my Lord, I pour at Thy feet its treasure-store

Take myself, and I will be ever, only, all for Thee.”
