Overcomers

I just saw this in my private messages on Facebook and decided we should all see it. Written originally by Jab Gibson and shared today on Facebook by Rev. Peter Olayinka

To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. Revelation 3:21

Christians in areas of persecution have used many
metaphors and similes to describe the victory of following
Jesus and becoming an overcomer as He was. Here are
some examples:

In the former Soviet Union, believers said:
√ Overcomers are like nails. The harder you hit them, the deeper they go!

In China believers said:
√ Overcomers are like bamboo. The more you cut them down, the faster and stronger they grow back.

In Iran believers said:
√ Overcomers are like rubber balls. The harder you throw them down on the floor, the higher they rebound!
√ Overcomers are like flowers. The more you crush them, the stronger and sweeter the fragrance.

In the Philippines believers said:
√ Overcomers are like stained-glass cathedral windows at
night. Their true beauty is revealed only when there is light
from within.

In India believers said:
√ Overcomers are like tea bags. You have to put them in hot water to know how strong they are!

You can be an overcomer! And you can stand strong through the storm!

RESPONSE: Today I will be an overcomer standing strong
through the storm.

PRAYER: Pray that all Christians living under severe
persecution will be encouraged and understand what it
means to be an overcomer…as well as anticipate the many
rewards Jesus promises to overcomers.
