For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. — 1 John 5:4
What makes you different from every other person born of flesh and blood? All mankind is born of flesh and blood, born of the will of man. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. — John 1:12-13
Born of God. How is one born of God? To know Jesus Christ, that He is righteous. To know Him is to follow Him by practicing righteousness. To know that He died for us and rose to victory over death. To have a personal relationship with Him. That is what it means to know Him and know that He is righteous.
Being born of God makes us overcomers because Christ lives in us. He who lives in us is greater than he who is in the world. Jesus has wisdom greater than, power greater than, victory greater than he who is in the world. We are so blessed to have Jesus living in us. He is our victory! He is our righteousness! He is our overcomer!
It is by faith that we shall overcome. Faith in Jesus Christ. He is the VICTORY!!!!!
Continually seeking Him,
If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him. — 1 John 2:29
You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. — 1 John 4:4
