Caught My Attention: 5.11.2011

 For the love of God is this, that we obey his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome, for whatever is born of God conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world, our faith. Who is it that conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? (1 John 5:3-5)
Whenever I encounter it, I find myself wondering about the "conquering the world" thing.  From the way I've sometimes seen it protrayed, it's a long way from the one who said, "My kingdom is not of this world."
