  1. Greater is he that is in you


    Philippians 4:8
    Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

    Romans 12:9-21
    9Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

    10Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
    11Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
    12Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
    13Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
    14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
    15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
    16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
    17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
    18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
    19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
    20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

    John 16:33
    These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

    John 2:13
    I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
    John 2:14
    I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

    John 4:4
    Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world

    Romans 8:31-39

    31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
    32He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
    33Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
    34Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
    35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
    36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
    37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
    38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

  2. Amen, I was just thinking on some of those verses.:) I call that conformation thanks.
  3. Thank you! and Amen!
  4. Thank you Worshipper .

    This is so clear that we focus our mind soul and our very thoughts on Christ and the things that have the most meaning because everything else in this life is secondary.
  5. Be NOT overcome of evil; but overcome evil with good

    Romans 12:21
    Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

    Genesis 50:20:21
    But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
    21Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.
    Matthew 5:44
    But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
    Luke 6:27
    But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
    Luke 6:35
    But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest:
    for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

    :groupray: Isn't this love our enemies is to have the character of loving forgiveness just as Christ Jesus has toward us.

    Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

  6. Yes it is amazing , Worshipper . but for the love of Jesus Christ in us can we practice this because in the natural we could not love our enemies .
