Today's Verse : 1 John 5:4

For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. — 1 John 5:4

Thought

This is the companion passage to 1 John 2:17 — "The world and its desires are passing away, but the one who does the will of God lives forever." Our destiny and future are not limited to the boundaries of existence tied to our little blue planet. Our future and our hope burst the boundaries of mortality and are tied to our faith in a resurrected and victorious Savior who is coming back to bring us to his eternal home. This faith is displayed by doing God's will even when most people in our contemporary culture choose to chase what is fleeting and transient.

Prayer

Thank you, dear Father, for the assurance of victory, immortality, reunion, and joy. In Jesus' name. Amen.
