1 John 4:4 – Let ’em Have it (August 1)
Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Monday. August 1st. The 2nd day of the Hebraic week.
Our verse today is 1 John 4:4.
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
To understand our verse a little more, we must understand that the previous verses explain that it’s the spirit of anti-Messiah that’s in the world. Yet, our verse told us that the one who is in us is greater.
To illustrate this, allow me to share a funny commercial that came out in the late 90’s. It was a commercial for a certain hot sauce. It opens with a man eating pizza on his porch but he was putting hot sauce on every bite. You see two empty bottles of hot sauce next to him and he’s holding a third in his hand. Suddenly a mosquito lands on the man’s leg. The man let the mosquito draw blood and fly away. Just seconds later you see the mosquito go off like an explosion in mid air. The man smiled and kept eating.
That which is in you is greater than that which is in the world. So let ’em have it.
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
