A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, June 13

1 John 5:3-5


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.


Again we are reminded that all we need in this world is ours through Christ. By this I mean all we need to overcome the pull and the temptations of the world, and any evil forces in the world is our faith in Christ Jesus. This is the armor of God. I think sometimes I lose track of this power and this protection, and forget to ask for help. Or, I don't even realize I need help until I am in a mess.


Father God, I am thankful for the armor you provide for me to fight off evil. Help me to remember to use it. Amen


Becky, transforming

Who can win the battle against the evil of this world? Those of us who believe Jesus is the son of God. Loving him means keeping his commandments and that’s not difficult. Our faith is our armor and will give us victory.


John’s words are simple enough that I felt the need to rearrange the verses.


Prayer: gracious God, may I remember how really easy God has made it…

1 John 5:3-5

For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God

From the beginning, Satan’s lie has been that God’s commandments are too hard and too harsh for his followers. This was the lie in the garden of Eden, and it’s the lie still today. Many people think that God’s commandments are burdensome and that those who obey His commandments have to miss out on the fun and enjoyment…

1 John 5:3-5 This passage in 1John echoes the words of Jesus in John’s gospel. Jesus told the disciples that in this world we will have trouble, “but take courage, I have overcome the world.” This power is made available to us through the Holy Spirit. We have been given what we need to fight and win the battles of spiritual warfare faced every single day. We too, can overcome the world. Starting our day with Scripture is the way to put on the armor we need to protect us as we wade into the battle.

Prayer - Lord, never let me forget to put on Your full armor before engaging the forces that conspire to lead me astray. May…
