Victory in Jesus!
In his letter, John says the following: "For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith" (1 John 5:4). As the Easter season continues into its final two weeks, we see that the death and resurrection of Jesus celebrated on Easter morning have profound implications on our lives in the here and now. As Jesus was victorious, so too are we. For as he says in John's gospel, "In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
