How to be an Overcomer

Revelation 12:11 - "And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death."

It is superfluous to believe we would die for our faith if we are not dying to self in the ordinary, day-to-day. How do we ready ourselves to both live for Christ or to die for Him daily, or to ultimately give up our lives? We must confess, profess, and obsess, beloved! Our confession of what Jesus has done for us through His shed blood is fundamental. Then, we must profess daily what He has done in our respective lives, both by word and deed. Then, we must obsess on our great love, Jesus Christ, and daily give ourselves more and more to Him.

The Lord's words become lifeless when we live as philosophical professors of Christ, for they cost us nothing. Yet, if we are doing these simple yet profound things aforementioned, we will be ready to live or die for Jesus in any situation. The cost will not be a consideration in lieu of what we gain.
