John continues . . . Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is begotten by God, and everyone who loves the Father loves also the one begotten by him. . . .
For the love of God is this, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome, for whoever is begotten by God conquers the world. And the victory that conquers the world is our faith. 1_Jn_4:19–5:4
Ponder these words beloved! What is it that we feel is conquering us? Our jobs, our neighbors, terrorists, weather, health? John says – HAVE FAITH! It’s faith in Jesus, it’s love for God and one another that will conquer it all, even fear, even fear of death!
