Jesus commands us to overcome

For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not burdensome. For whoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:3-5

Jesus commandments are directly related to overcoming the world.

Sometimes people think of obedience to Jesus commandments as trying to fulfill some legal clause or formality, and therefore they consider the concept petty.

Nope. Obeying His commandments is to do with overcoming a world which is hell-bent on overcoming us.

The victory of faith is manifest in obeying the Lord Jesus and overcoming the world.
