1 John 5:4 For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
Overcoming and conquering do not come from self-effort and law keeping. It is faith that overcomes the world, and it is faith that conquers and receives the eternal blessings. The power required for overcoming through faith comes from God, and not from self-examination and greater human effort. Do not look in the mirror. Look to Christ!
