“Who is it that overcomes the world?  Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”                                 
1 John 5:5

Jesus’s role as both Christ and Son is key to embracing our opportunity to overcome. 


“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him.”      1 John 5:1

Belief and devotion that Jesus is the Christ brings us into a new life with God, and a new walk with God reflects love for the Son.

 “And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.”

1 John 4:14

Belief and testimony that Christ is the World’s Savior, sent by the Father:  further evidence of God’s life in us.

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.”

1 John 4:9

Love is shown: in God’s case by making his precious Son flesh and literally sharing his sacrifice.    Through that sacrifice, we continue to both live and model God’s love.

“And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us.”
1 John 3:23
Believe Christ and love your guts out.  This is so much easier said than done, but our goal by the day, by the hour, by the minute.  A heartfelt thank you and prayer today  for those actively serving in the military and all Veterans.  Thank you, because of your choices, we may enjoy freedoms safely.

“And this is what he promised us — eternal life.”
1 John 2:25

Clinging to a promise of eternal life can be tough – all we know is the messy, fleshy, temporary, physical life we have now on earth. Remain in the Son and the Father now to keep focus on remaining with the Son and Father in eternity.

“As for you, see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.”
1 John 2:24

We see to so much during a day. So much can remain with us. We are encouraged to be selective with what sticks with us, to hold onto what we have heard about God from the beginning. Doing so helps us to remain focused, so that we can spend more time remaining in the Son and the Father.
