Fiji won it’s first Summer Olympic medal ever when the tiny island nation won the Rugby gold medal.  After their victory they sung as a team, in unison, these words.

We have overcome
We have overcome
By the blood of the Lamb
And the Word of the Lord
We have overcome.

As believers we overcome every day by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of the Lord.  In fact the Bible says in Romans we are MORE than CONQUERORS through Him who loved us.  And we don’t even need to win a gold medal!

I am in awe of the Fijian players combination of power & strength on the field and humility & grace off it.  Here’s how they handled the medal ceremony.

The link below has sound of the players singing.  For some reason I was unable to post the video.
