Are you born again? This is a question everyone should ask him/herself. We have reviewed four (4) signs of being born again as found in Johns’ gospel. Today we will talk on the fifth sign.

 

Overcoming the World

 

Fifth, John wrote: “Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world” (I John 5:4).

A man who is born again does not use the world’s opinion as his standard of right and wrong. He does not mind going against the world’s ways, ideas, and customs. What men think or say no longer concerns him. He overcomes the love of the world. He finds no pleasure in things which seem to bring happiness to most people. To him, they seem foolish and unworthy of an immortal being.

He loves God’s praise more than man’s praise. He fears offending God more than offending man. It is unimportant to him whether he is blamed or praised; his first aim is to please God. This is one of the major signs of a believer. Have you overcome the world? What would the apostle say about you? Are you born again?

 

 

Further reading: John 16:33

I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world!”
