1 John 5:3-4
KJV 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
MKJV 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments, and His commandments are not burdensome. 4 For everything that has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

3 We are to keep God’s commands thru the power of the Holy Spirit because we have received His love and because we love Him. We cant truly love God like we should if we are not following God’s commands. We show God our love by being His disciple.

4 We have already overcome because Jesus did this on our behalf at the cross. We can by faith continue to overcome sin by Him, this doesn’t mean we stop sinning any sin we do commit is forgiven if we are His and we should be growing to be more like sin by grasping the things of God rather then the things of sin.
