Through God’s Word, we discover that God not only gives the victory, but He actually commands it. If someone was to be saved by their own goodness, they would have to die; face the penalty of death, then rise and live a perfect life. This is impossible; therefore we know that we are only saved by the grace of God. Scripture tells us that "to him who overcomes", they will inherit eternal life. They overcome because they have salvation; they have received Jesus as a result of their faith, and they overcome.
