1 John 5:4 says, "For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith."
When you come to a place of accepting and following Jesus from the outside in, and yielding control, then Jesus is in you and you have the power of God in you!
Your life is then tied to the work of Christ on the cross and in the resurrection, and if you stay in the fight, if you will not quit, you cannot lose! -Dr. Drew Shofner
