The Kitchen Table 1 John Day 22
For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 1 John 5:4
There it is! Those who love God overcome the world. It’s those who love God that overcome. Therein lies the problem to the victorious Christian life. We struggle with what we love. Our struggle with the world is a “love” struggle that impacts our “faith” walk. You see, we tend to believe or want to believe in the persons and pleasures we love. The Bible says that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. (John 3:19) Our struggle is with what we love. We leverage life through what we love. We put our hope and faith in what we love. It’s that struggle with what we love that leaves us alive but alone and afraid in a dark world. Fall in love with God today. Let His love give you hope that inspires your faith and live in His love today. The secret to your victory is your love. Love it all, all He said, He did, and He wants. Those who love God win.
