WHO I AM IN CHRIST!
I am one who has overcome the wicked one
1 John 2:14 Message Bible
And a second reminder, dear children: You know the Father from personal experience. You veterans know the ONE who started it all and you newcomers --such vitality and strength! God's word is so steady in you. Your fellowship with God enables you to gain a victory over the Evil One.
Here the Apostle of love [John the beloved] tells the followers of Christ that their FELLOWSHIP with God enables them to WIN over EVIL! Notice the past tense! Often we feel powerless or useless in the battle against evil - but remember we are told "RESIST the devil and he will flee from you.! Nothing makes him run like using the WORD of God! Do you feel you have no strength left for battle? RESIST! Having done all to stand, stand - ! Don't quit - it's usually darkest just before DAWN! FIGHT ON! Tomorrow comes the SONG!
SPREAD THE WORD!
