7.4 – Assurance of Guidance – 1 John 4:4

Memorize 1 John 4:4

Little children, you are from God, and have conquered them;
for the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (NRSV).

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 (NIV).

Reflect on 1 John 4:4

  • For context read 1 John 4 in the NRSV, the NIV, or The MESSAGE.
  • Who are the three players in this verse?
  • Because we are God's children we have overcome "them."  Who are they?
  • Who is the one in you?  Who is the one who is in the world?  Who is greater?  More importantly, what does this mean for your life?
