THE TRUTH IN US
1ST JOHN 1:6
6If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.
1:6 Here John was confronting the first of three claims of the false teachers: that we can have fellowship with God and go on living in spiritual darkness. False teachers who thought that the physical body was evil or worthless taught one of two approaches to behavior: They either insisted on denying bodily desires through rigid discipline, or they approved of gratifying every physical lust because the body was going to be destroyed anyway. Obviously the second approach was more popular! Here John is saying that no one can claim to be a Christian and still live in evil and immorality. We can’t love God and court sin at the same time. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible NIV
We’ve all seen people who claimed to be saved, yet live a life that shows no fruit of it. That’s where the phrase “ check your salvation” comes into play. Don’t be the one that needs to hear that phrase! ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS living a life that shows the truth that is in us.
