Good morning Church family,
1 John 5:1-5 says “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”
When we think of Christ’s work of salvation we often focus on his death and don’t pay as much attention to his life and resurrection. It is the whole life of Christ that brings us salvation. In death He saved us, in life He teaches us how to live a Godly life, and overcome as He has overcome. Victory is ours because Christ lives in us.
