Greater Is He

Today's reading.
1 John 4:1-6    Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world...
1 John 4

think about it.
How do you "test the spirits" or false teachers (4:1-3)? Why should we not be afraid of these people (4:4-6)? Where or how have you come up against this kind of person?

the blog.
A very well known verse in the Bible is 1 John 4:6 "Little children, you are from God and have overcome them [antichrists--people who deny the Father and the Son and Jesus as Christ], for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world." Yesterday John warned us about antichrists but also encouraged us about who we are in Christ. 

So what does this verse convey to you about being a follower of Christ? How can we use this verse to give us a boost today or this week and beyond, as we live out and deal with what life brings our way? Tami W.
