Devotion for August 30

I John 5:4 ESV

“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.”

Struggling to persevere in the faith we sometimes wonder if we shall overcome. This verse assures all who have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior will overcome.

I was asked yesterday if spirituality and religion were the same. “No,” I said. “Religion relies on doctrine and practice. Spirituality just exists but only manifests itself, grows within a set context like religion.” Then he asked if other people who do not believe in Jesus will go to Heaven even tho they are spiritual or religious. My answer was that only God knows a persons heart. That I proclaim Christ as the only sure way to God. He is still confused but I know those who believe and proclaim will overcome
