The believer's adversary is Satan. The Word of God admonishes us: "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8).
The modern church tells believers that they can overcome Satan with works such as prayer, fasting, doing good deeds, etc. Although these things are good within themselves, they will not bring victory to the believer. Victory over Satan comes only through one placing one's faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ and Him crucified! That is it.
If the believer tries to overcome the enemy using works, he will quickly find himself in despair and wondering why, no matter how hard he tries, he cannot stop sinning. This is the reason Paul cried, "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" (Romans 7:24).
The following two studies declare, directly from The Word of God, the importance of anchoring our faith in Jesus Christ and His finished work on Calvary's Cross. That is how we obtain Victory in Jesus!
