Conquerors

Who is it that conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:1-12   What does it really mean to conquer the world? Does it mean that we get everything we want or that we are always in control?  Does it mean we command attention or demand attention? Does it mean we speak loudly and carry a big stick or quietly stomp every word of other people’s perception? Jesus simply followed the will of God. If we can open our hearts wide enough to allow ourselves to do the same, our sense of control, need for attention and desire to be heard now belongs to God. Once God has it, who’s arms are long enough to take on God?
