Overcomer (Dr. David Jeremiah)
Study of a Key Bible Passage: Ephesians 6:10-18
God designed you for victory. We all know it’s hard out there. Sometimes it feels like the world is ripping apart at the seams. Sometimes it feels like our hearts can’t take any more hurt. But no matter what the world throws at us each day–anxiety, fear, confusion, temptation–we have a choice on how to respond. We can either concede defeat or live in the victory God has promised. Dr. David Jeremiah uses Paul’s instructions in Ephesians 6:10–18–his command for us to overcome the forces of evil by putting on the armor of God–to lay out a pathway for spiritual victory.
