Get In The Game – Part 5
January 26 – 27, 2019
“For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.” 1 John 5:4-5
- Live In Victory.
“I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.” 1 John 5:13
Here’s what we know: followers of Jesus…
- Love God and love people. Just do it!
“We know that God’s children do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them.” 1 John 5:18
“We know we love God’s children if we love God and obey his commandments. Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome.” 1 John 5:2-3
“‘(Jesus) For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.’” Matthew 11:30
- Are children of God. Just live like it!
“We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one.” 1 John 5:19
“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God. And everyone who loves the Father loves his children, too.” 1 John 5:1
- Are winners. Just embrace it!
“And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life. Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.” 1 John 5:20-21
My Next Step: Every day this week I will read and meditate on a verse from the “Victory in Jesus” insert.
