(St. Andre Bessette)
You belong to God, children,
and you have conquered them,
for the one who is in you
is greater than the one
who is in the world.
1 Jn 3:22-4:6
WE belong to God, beloved!
What more awesome, Good News, is possible!
This is what John said about “them” and “the world.”
“Beloved, do not trust every spirit
but test the spirits to see whether they belong to God,
because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
This is how you can know the Spirit of God:
every spirit that acknowledges Jesus Christ come in the flesh
belongs to God,
and every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus
does not belong to God.
This is the spirit of the antichrist
who, as you heard, is to come,
but in fact is already in the world.” ibid.
