We Have Overcome!
1 John 5:1-21 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him...
I found 1 John 5 a good wrap up. It reiterated to me what it means to be in God's family and how being a believer of Christ (being born of God) we have victory over this world. Verse 5 says it all. "Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?" What an awesome promise. Yet, it's a promise I sometimes overlook when I find myself being torn and challenged by circumstances and things of the world.
So take a few minutes to read back through and think about 1 John 5:4-5. Can you use these verses as an encouragement or a confidence builder? And if so, how? Anything else in 1 John 5 that you find helpful? Tami W.
