Do you ever need a victory in your life, or want to know who is going to win the battle? This verse tells us right away everyone who believes in God will become victorious over this world. Verse 3 tells us if we love God, we keep his commandments which are not burdensome. Jesus says that if we love God with everything we have and love others that it is his commandment. (John 13: 34) We are his if we love God and love people. Verse 5 – Who is it that overcomes the world? The one who believes in Jesus is the son of God. If we are born of God, if we believe in Jesus then we have victory over the world no matter what is going on in our life. We can always be looking at Jesus to overcome this world for us. We have a future that is better than this world so with all the stress and all the bad stuff that is happening we can look at Jesus because he overcame this world, and we will do the same as Him if we are born of God. We know that Jesus has already overcome the world through His death and resurrection and will one day in the future come back to take His children home. Today is a great day because our future is going to be awesome.
