1 John 5:4
Reflections on Today’s Verse
Are you trying to overcome sin in your life on your own? Do you believe that self-discipline can take care of your problems? Realize the depth of your sinfulness and turn to Christ.
Have you given up on yourself and the world? Do you see no relief in sight from the evil and sin on every side? Take every care to make sure Christ lives in you (2 Cor. 13:5) and then take heart! If you have been born of God, you will overcome the world in the end! You will see the power of God begin to become manifest in your life and finally in full at the resurrection.

Father, it is no secret that there is sin even in the lives of Christians. We have been cleansed before God by the blood of Christ, but we still do what do not want to do. Even though we still see the law of sin at work in our bodies here on earth, Father, we don’t want to sin and don’t want to make a practice of sinning if we are in you. Lord, in the end, we will overcome the world because we have been born of your salvation. Lord, refresh my heart today to these facts. Only faith in your will overcome the sin before me. I pray all this in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
