"Now the just shall live by faith; but if any man draw back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him." Heb. 10:38.
By what does one gain the victory over the world? "For whatsoever is born of
God overcometh the world; and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." 1 John 5:4.
In the struggles with temptations, if one trusts in Jesus, how will he show it?
"These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." John 16:33.
But is there not some other help in the work of overcoming, besides a silent trust in Christ? "And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." Rev. 12:11.
But besides receiving power to overcome our foes, are there not temporal benefits to be derived from trusting in Jesus? "For she said within herself, If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned Him about, and when He saw her, He said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour." Matt. 9:21, 22. (See also Mark 10:52 and Luke 17:19).
