1 John 5:1-5

1 John 5:1-5
Contemporary English Version (CEV)

 I always thought it would be cool to have one of those no-limit credit cards, especially one where someone else was paying the bills.  Imagine feeling like you could buy anything -- want to buy everyone in the world an ice cream cone?  Done.  Want a yacht?  Put it on the card.  It'd be fun, right?  You'd have complete confidence that you could buy anything.
  Jesus is trying to teach us to have that kind of confidence in God.  If we truly believe that all things are possible through faith, we are joining our lives with God's eternal and overwhelming victory.  We are a part of the greatest conquering force in the world, one that does so through the power of selfless love, and we shall celebrate this victory forever.  All of this is made possible through faith in Christ.
  What kind of confidence do you have?  Do you believe you are part of defeating the world?  Our faith gives us victory!
