faith that overcomes the world
EVERYONE born of God overcomes
the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our
faith. (1John 5:4)
That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the
Spirit is the spirit. The flesh with all its frailties drags you down.
It is the Spirit, which revives and enlivens; the flesh profiteth
nothing. Regeneration is accomplished in the human spirit by the Holy
Spirit of God. And to be regenerated is to have the divine, eternal life
as the new source and new element of a new person. It is this revived
spirit that helps one to overcome the world.
