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, ESV)
The pressure to conform to the standards of this world can be enormous. Do you ever get frustrated with the loose lifestyles and ‘acceptable behaviors’ of the society we live in? God promises those who put their trust in Him can overcome the temptation to just fit in. We can rise above all the clatter of our society and live according to God’s standards that he may be glorified in word, thought, action, and motivation. All we need is faith in Christ. His way is far better than what is being offered by the world.
Prayer: Lord, help me to be an overcomer and victor over this world.
