Yearly Ministry Theme
For the 2016-2017 ministry year, our focus will be Overcoming the World by Your Believing. Throughout the year, we will look at the promises in God’s Word that we can believe and take action on. As each of us believes and acts on the Word of God, our believing overcomes the world.
I John 5:4:
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh [conquers] the world: and this is the victory that overcometh [conquers] the world, even our faith [believing].
What a promise! Our believing is the victory that overcomes the world. The “world” in this verse refers to things on this earth which are opposed to the one true God, the obstacles to God’s purposes as orchestrated by our adversary, the Devil. God has given us the power through Christ to conquer all of these obstacles. As we believe the Word of God addressed to us in the Grace Administration and act on it, we overcome the world—we conquer the adversary’s obstacles.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors [superconquerors] through him that loved us.
The key to receiving the victory in life is believing—your believing—God’s Word. So we each build our understanding of God, His promises, and His power by learning the rightly divided Word, which our ministry makes available in all its many resources. Then we boldly believe, acting on that Word, and claim the victory.
As you enhance your understanding of God, may you grow in your believing of His Word and share these truths with others so that they too may have the victory to overcome the world.
