THIS IS HOW WE KNOW
1ST JOHN 2:3-6
3We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. 4Whoever says, “I know him,” h but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 5But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 6Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
2: 3-6 How can we be sure that we belong to Christ? This passage tells us we can demonstrate that we know Christ by obeying his commandments. What does he command us to do? John answers in 3: 23: “Believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another.” So when we believe in Jesus and love others like Jesus, we can be assured that God is working in our lives and that we belong to Christ. Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible
The verses here always remind me of what our brother Richard used to tell us that his pops would tell him, “Boy I know you aren’t living right cause your fruits aren’t showing!” How can you tell if you are living for Christ? By the fruits you are showing! If we have Christ living inside us then we should be living as these verses tell us, keeping his commands and living Christ like in our lives! ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS letting our fruits show Christ in us!!
