This Week's Quote
“God will not allow us the luxury of dual citizenship. This world murdered His Son, and God calls upon us to overcome the world regardless of whether it turns toward us a smiling face or a scowling face. We are to recognize the world for what it is--an enemy, a system energized by Satan and gratifying to the flesh. Victory over the world is not only expected of us, it is explained to us. ‘Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?’ (1 John 5:5). ... Once that great truth is enthroned in our hearts, our attitude toward this world changes. We see the world as He saw it and the world sees us as it saw Him, and a great gulf is fixed”
(John Phillips, commentary on 1 John)
