I John 5:4 “For everyone born of God overcomes the world.”

There’s a difference between resistance & resignation when it comes to the world view, and temptation is lurking around every corner as we attempt to remain faithful to God’s Word. The world is concerned only with the present transitory dimension of life…the here and now. It ignores or outright denies anything to do with eternity. And it gauges our existence only on material standards and achievements. The world is full of selfishness, greed, lust, and ambition… all laser focused on human achievement and self. So as Christians, we have two choices…do we resist, or do we resign ourselves to the world? But the good news is Jesus has already done it for us! “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) And because of His work on the Cross, we are more than conquerors and can claim victory over the world that opposes God by resisting temptation and remaining faithful to Him.
