1 John 5:1-5
1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.
2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.
3 This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,
4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
Many of us allow Christ to function in certain areas of our lives while other areas are withheld. This introduces the principle of duality in our lives that causes inner division.
Between 1921-1937 the British devised a system of government whereby power was shared between the British and the Indians.That kind of government is called a 'diarchy'. The system failed and any kind of spiritual diarchy will fail too. The answer is in verse 5 if we be-lieve in Jesus as the son of God we will overcome the world.We can't serve two masters. No one can be truly happy when there's an inner division. There must be unity within or else we will spiritually collapse. If we do not allow Christ to enter the core of our being and take control of our lives then we live in a state of tension.
We are naturally self-centred and we can think we are do-ing things for Christ's glory, when ,in reality are doing it for our own glory.
Recommit yourself to making Jesus the Lord of your life.Pray and make Jesus king and get rid of all half-gods from your heart.
