Overcoming?

Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that
Jesus is the Son of God. – 1 John 5:5

Have you overcome the world?  Those who believe that Jesus is the
Son of God have.

Not because in and of ourselves, we have overcome the world.

It is because when Jesus died on the Cross, when He cried, “It is
finished,” He had overcome the one thing that separated us from
God–our sin.

On that Cross, God punished Jesus.  God took out His wrath and
punishment for every sin that had been committed and ever would be
committed onto Jesus.

Jesus, who knew no sin, became sin for us.  That day the wall that
separated us from God came down, reconciling us to God, our Creator.
