    Defeating our three enemies.....
    ➀The world ➁The flesh ➂The Devil
    Ephesians 2:2-3
    V.2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
    V.3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.


    Note: A Christian can live a defeated life; But we don’t have to.
    ------------------------
    ➀A Christian’s victory over the world....... (Studying God’s Word)
    Romans 12:2
    “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

    ➁A Christian’s victory over the flesh....... (Yielding to the Holy Spirit)
    Galatians 5:16
    “[This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”


    ➂A Christian’s victory over the Devil......... (Drawing neigh to God)
    James 4:7
    “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
