• WITH CHRIST, YOU ARE AN OVERCOMER.
…In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33

7 CHARACTERISTICS OF AN OVERCOMER

1. REFUSE TO GROW WEARY.
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.  Galatians 6:9-10 (see also Matthew 4:2-3, Hebrews 12:3, Isaiah 40:31) 

2. COMMIT TO DOING GOOD.

3. RECOGNIZE THAT THEIR ARE SEASONS. 
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”  Galatians 6:9

*see also Hosea 8:7, 2 Corinthians 9:6, Galatians 6:7-8, James 3:17-18

6. COMMIT TO THE WILL OF GOD. 
For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:  Heb 10:36  (see also Matthew 26:38-39)  
"O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will."  Matthew 26:38-39

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. 2 Timothy 4:7 (NLT) (see also 2 Corinthians 8:10-12, Hebrews 10:36-38, 2 Timothy 4:7) 
So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. John 19:30
