Eternal life overcomes the world

(12/2) |

Verses:1_John 5:4 ~ 5:21
Key Verse:18. We know that everyone who is begotten of God does not sin, but he who has been begotten of God keeps himself, and the evil one does not touch him.
Topic:Eternal life overcomes the world
Emphasis:We gain eternal life by faith, which is an absolute truth. First John chapter 5 mentions the word “testify” eight times. “…you may know that you have eternal life…” (v13) This reveal the characteristic of the eternal life: 1. Overcome the world;(v4) 2. Do not commit sin; 3. Guard ourselves; 4.”The evil one does not touch him…”(v18); 5. Guard ourselves from the idols(v21).
Meditate:“But he who has been begotten of God keeps himself”(v18), “guard yourselves from idols”(v21) indicate that the principles of the Christian life needs our cooperation with God’s life which indwells in us.
Prayer:Praise the Lord for the eternal life that is inside of me. Please teach me how to live according to this eternal life and by this life I can know God’s will.
Hymn:Christ has come to be life
