“John addressed them so that they would KNOW that he was speaking to the MIRACLE OF CHRIST WITHIN THEM. ”He who overcomes“. Overcomes WHAT? ”For whatever is born of God OVERCOMES THE WORLD; and this is the victory that has OVERCOME THE WORLD – our FAITH.“ How did we overcome the world?
NOT by what we have done, but through Christ. Faith is NOT something we have done, or something that we do, but is a description of the ACTUAL (not ATTEMPTED) dependency of those who have been inserted into the vine (Christ). Our faith is the ”victory“ … the VICTORY … not the thing required. ”
This is an awe-inspiriring article! It is important God confirms His identity in people.
