Overcoming the World (1 John 5:1-12)

Joshua West

In this exhortative sermon, Joshua West explains that those who genuinely believe that Jesus is the Christ and Son of God are born of God and will overcome the world. He outlines three key evidences of being born of God: confessing Jesus as the Christ, loving God and fellow believers, and obeying God's commandments out of love rather than burden. Christians overcome the world not by their own works, but through faith in Christ's completed work on the cross. Joshua West also highlights the unique testimony of the Spirit, water, and blood that affirms Jesus' divinity and sacrificial death. Eternal life is found exclusively in Jesus Christ, and those who put their faith in Him will lose their life for His sake but ultimately gain true, everlasting life.
