“Born to Conquer”  Lesson # 8

  “  Conquering the land! “

Intro:  Where is one place you have never been that you really want to visit in your lifetime?


  1. Romans 8:37, John 3:3-5 When we accept Christ we are born again, we are born into a life of salvation and victory found only in Jesus which allows us to conquer everything in our way.
    1. Joshua 1:1-9  God has called us to conquer the land for him! God has a specific call and plan for each of our lives and specific people he wants each of us to reach!
      1. 2 Cor 4:4  We are surrounded by people blinded by sin who cannot see the truth because the devil has blinded their minds!
      2. John 8:12, Matt 5:16 God is the light of the world, apart from God and outside of God everything is dark, God wants us as Christians to carry the light of God within us into the dark world around us and win those who are lost to Jesus!
    2. Matt 11:12  God will assign each of us to a dark part of this world to conquer! We are called to conquer our schools, neighborhoods, cities, and nations for Christ!
  2. 2 Samuel 11:1-5  David was the king of Israel called and anointed of God to lead the nation of Israel back to God and to conquer the wicked nations that were around him.
    1. 2 Samuel 11:1 “In the spring when kings go to war” David was supposed to be using his time fighting against the wickedness around him and doing the work God had for him.
      1. 2 Samuel 11:1 “But david remained in Jerusalem” David was idle with his time, God had called him to go and fight, but David chose to be idle, lazy, and stay at home while everyone else was out fighting, and his idleness got him in trouble.
      2. 1 Samuel 11:2-3 David was not supposed to he hanging out with Bathsheba! He was supposed to be with the people of God doing the work of God!
    2. Deut 30:19, Josh 24:15 Each of us have a choice will we waste our time doing nothing for God, hanging out with the wrong people, and living in sin?, or will we rise up, conquer every excuse, fear, and temptation and boldly take the land for God? #Borntoconquer!


  1. What do you feel the call of God may be for your life personally? What are you doing now to prepare yourself for the call and plan that God has for your life?
  2. What are some of the dangers of being idle and hanging out with the wrong people instead of choosing to be active and busy doing the work of God?
  3. How can we avoid falling into the same mistake David made of becoming lazy and apathetic in our faith, hanging out with the wrong people, and falling into sin?
  4. What is something you feel God has called you to do? and who do you feel God has called you to reach for him? What is your plan to step out and conquer the land for God?

End: Pray for those who want to overcome everything the devil puts in their way to try and stop  them from conquering the land, pray for any who need to accept Christ, then take requests.
