Part 4: Overcoming lifestyle

(This is part 4 of 10 parts in this class)


There is a lifestyle that overcomes the devil. This lifestyle is summed up in the words,

They (the saints) weren't in love with themselves; they were willing to die for Christ.

Revelation 12:11b - The Message


This is Eugene Peterson's translation. This insightful translation reveals to us what an overcoming lifestyle is.

You will overcome the devil when your affection is on Christ - not on self. You will overcome him when you conduct your life by faith as a spiritual creation of God.


You will not gain the upper hand when you live as a soulish, sense realm person; this is to be in love with self. You will overcome him when you live in the spirit, walking by faith. (See Romans 1:17 and 2 Corinthians 5:7.)

You can do this because this is how God created you as His child at your new birth. (Psalm 112:6-8 and 2 Corinthians 4:18.)
