(St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Religious)
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.
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 have the Spirit of God within us, beloved. We are so very blessed! Now all we need do is always remember that fact. Live the Spirit! Love in the Spirit. And enjoy the peace the Spirit of God brings to us. Jesus has conquered ‘the world’!
