 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?  1 John 5:1-5
Our faith overcomes the world... that is what the verse says... in context it is talking about keeping the commandments and loves others. I believe the commandments spoken of are the two that Christ gave as He walked on the earth...
 But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:34-40
Our faith is made strong but loving the Lord with all our heart, soul, and mind, and loving others as we love ourselves. Then the faith we have helps us have victory to overcome the world.

We can have minor victories through out our lives here on earth, but the ultimate victory is over death and Satan in the end. I get to live eternally with my Lord and Savior because I have faith in His victory on the cross and death. That is the ultimate VICTORY!

Thanks for reading. God Bless You All!
