“Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.” – Revelation 3:12
“Those who overcome the world develop an all-encompassing love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Overcoming the world is not one defining moment in a lifetime, but a lifetime of moments that define an eternity.” – Neil L. Andersen
