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.

– 1 John 4:4 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

There are some Christian circles that place their emphasis upon the powers of darkness, but the apostle John gives us a different way to see things: even though the powers around us may be great, the power of God within us is greater. Notice that this power does not come because we have more talent or skills, but because we are from God. This brings us back to a childlike trust in our Father, who loves us and provides for us in the midst of opposition.
