Conquer the world

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         Whatever is born of God conquers the world.
                  — 1 John 5.4

God is love.
The love of God,
who is the Heart of Love, who makes all things,
flows through you into the world.

Your love has the power to create worlds,
a small bit at a time, to be sure,
but it is immense power,
greater than your troubles,
greater than the word’s greatest woes.

The love that flows through you
is already consuming the world,
transforming it.
First it consumes you, and transforms you,
and then it changes the world.

How else could one with no power but love
face death saying
“Fear not, I have conquered the world,”
and then die, and rise?

In love you appear to lose
but the world is overcome.

Never mind how small your part is:
the God flowing through you
conquers the world.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
