1 John 5:5 NASB "Who is the one who overcomes the world, but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?"As the coffee was served, the conversation turned to one man! Today's verse speaks about overcoming the world and who we need to believe in for that to happen! As he sat down, and we began to open our bibles and begin the men's group, one of the men was obviously not in a good place. We began to inquire of him, what was going on, that he was so down and saddened. He said simply said that he had fallen again to temptation and wasn't sure he could ever get past it. As we prayed with him and encouraged him, he began to find strength in the brotherhood that sat with him and promised to support him as he overcame the temptations. In life, we don't have to overcome the world but we do need to overcome the temptation to sin and that strength is found in Jesus Christ and godly men to stand with us. Make sure your in a godly men's group who find their strength in Jesus Christ to overcome the world of temptation! peace, tom
