Podcast #230: “Overcomer” by Mandisa

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

Some troubles God uses to help us grow and develop endurance. There are obstacles in our lives, however, that we need to overcome…not just endure.  Be sure that the message of Mandisa’s song “Overcomer” is one that you can truly proclaim. In 1 John 5, John asks, “Who can overcome the world?”  I want to sing along with Mandisa on your behalf, “You’re an OVERCOMER!”


Join me as we discover how to truly be overcomers.

On this week’s episode I discuss:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Read in context
    • Consult an outside resource
    • Complete a word study
  • The author of I John – Bible.org Article
  • The Greek word for “world” – BibleHub.com
  • Obstacles and temptations that incentivize us to sin and how we overcome them
  • How we show God contempt
  • How to be sure we are a believer in Jesus Christ to know we can claim the promise that we are overcomers
