The 1 John Study will soon be drawing to a close! I’ve been growing so much in my faith as I’ve studied this book and exchanged observations and ideas with my Good Morning Girls group. I want to share just one truth today about the verses in 1 John 5 that I’ve been meditating on so far this week.
“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.” 1 John 5:1-5
How is it that we who are born of God–truly believing and trusting in Him–overcome the world? It is only because Jesus rescued us from this world by saving us through His sacrifice. Through Him, we can overcome the trials and temptations that this world has to offer.
I’m so thankful to be a child of God!
