1 John 5:5 New American Standard Bible
5 Who is the one who overcomes the world, but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
The word overcome in the Greek means to conquer. The word believes in the Greek means to have faith or entrust. It speaks of trusting and relying upon that which we place our faith in. The person who build their life upon the truth that Jesus is the Son of God is the person who will overcome and conquer the system of the world.
How do we overcome the world? This happens on a daily basis. Each day we face temptations, lies, and deceptions. When technology today and social media, it seems that our hearts are bombarded like never before. But for the child of God who takes their faith seriously, they will become a vessel of God’s glory.
When our lives are immersed in prayer and the study of God’s word, the life of Jesus will be produced within us. His light and glory that lives within us, will shine brightly in this generation. Sometimes we may struggle with how to be an effective witness for Jesus Christ. But the greatest way that we can manifest the life of Jesus within us is simply by living for Him. But building our lives upon His word and time spent in His presence. Each day He is bidding us to draw near, may we see the wonderful gift we have in daily fellowship with the Lord.
