For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith. 1 John 5:4
Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! Overcoming this world is not to become a billionaire and being in the top. First, we need to know what is world? The world is the system which is evil and always contrary to God’s Word in every possible way that results in leading people to continue living in lust and sin. God’s kingdom is totally opposite to the world’s kingdom.
Who overcomes the world? Word of God says, whoever is born of God overcomes the world. Though we are in this world, we are not of this world. Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.” Born of water is to submit the life to God by accepting the Lordship of Christ. Also, confessing with the conviction that I’m dead to this world system (sin) and I’m going to live for the kingdom of God (righteousness).
Jesus said, you can do nothing without me. We cannot overcome the world with our own ability and just having the desire to overcome it. But, we need His grace everyday, God has promised us His Holy Spirit who leads us into all truths. Being filled with the Holy Spirit and walking in the Spirit is the key to live an overcoming life. His grace is sufficient for us. Always abide in His love and walk a victorious life through Christ who strengthens you!
