Overcoming the World

1 John 5

1 k Everyone who believes that l Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and m everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him. 2 n By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. 3 For o this is the love of God, that we p keep his commandments. And q his commandments are not burdensome. 4 For r everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world - s our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes t that Jesus is the Son of God?
