We Overcome the World
Everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.1 John 5:4
God gives us the power to overcome the sinful world, and to overcome Satan’s evil temptations. Christians have the power to win every spiritual battle, but we are not perfect and we fall, but we get up with God’s power, and we have victory over Satan. And what a great thrill it is to have victory over Satan and his evil demons!
As the world gets more evil due Satan’s deceptions and lies, Christians fight with the power of God’s Love, because Satan hates it when we bring love into the world. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. (Matthew 24:12) Many people that don’t know Christ; their love will grow cold, because many will hate evil people.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12) God has given us power to overcome this evil world, and our fight is in the spiritual realm, because the world is deceived by Satan and his demons.
We overcome the world by ministering to the world, by reflecting God’s Truth and Love to everyone we encounter. We are light for Christ in this world, and light is always seen in darkness. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. (Matthew 5:14) Every Christian should always be prepared to be a light in this world, through our love, kindness, and knowledge of the Word.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, (Philippians 3:12) A Christian is secure in Christ, and we always look up to people because they are made in the image of God. How can we be a light in this world if we look down at people? Majority of people in this world, including our enemies, have been deceived by Satan, and our hatred goes to Satan’s deception and lies; and not to people.
Today be a light in this world by reflecting Christ, with his love, kindness, and patience; all with a caring heart. We fight Satan’s hate in this world. with God’s love.
Prayer: Lord guide me to be light to overcome this sinful world, and keep Satan from triggering my emotions to sin. In Jesus name, Amen
