1 John 5:1-5
WORD OF INSIGHT
Faith in the Incarnate Son of God
1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.
2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.
3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,
4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
AN INSIGHT REFLECT
Everyone who Believes Jesus is Christ is born of God. How can you believe-without faith? It is by faith that we are even able to believe in Jesus. So if we do believe then we are born of God.
We show our love, and reciprocate love by obeying him. If you love someone you do not want to hurt them, you obey them because you love them. When we keep his commands they are not burdensome, in other words we enjoy his commands, and want to obey them.
As born again believers we have overcome the world, our faith in God has made us overcome everything. That’s powerful! We are over-comers Amen!
Lord help us to live for you and to desire what you desire in Jesus name, Amen.
