Let’s look at 1 John 5:1-5, “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And His commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” This is a very need word in our lives today!
Man working for God is one thing, but God working in man is quite another. What we have in our world today is a system of religion that encourages us to work for God. This kind of work is frustrating and fruitless most of the time. But when we finally see the truth, it is actually God who works in man, this truth will be the game changer. Victory is a gift I receive in the Person of Jesus Christ. Victory is not something I win, but Someone I receive in my life. John asked a very important question, “Who is it that overcomes the world.” How will you answer this question today? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God can experience true victory. That is not my opinion, but that is straight from the Word of God! Love you guys!
