Greater – 1 John 4:4

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

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 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 particular 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 explode in mid-air. The man smiled and kept eating.

That which is in you is greater than that which is in the world.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
