1. Take heart!

Updated: Aug 7, 2021



"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)

Jesus exhorted his disciples to be positive because just as he overcame the world, they too were destined to overcome the world, once they received the Holy Spirit. He wasn't speaking of overcoming death, which he was yet to overcome, but he spoke of that which he had already overcome - the world, sin and Satan. So he said: "The prince of this world is coming but he has no hold on me." (John 14:30) We often contemplate about a victory in our next life but God exhorts us to walk in victory now, in this life! Victory is not measured by the wealth we possess but in our ability to turn our backs on this world and sin. 'Everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.' (1 John 5:4 ) Amen.
