1 John 5:1-3a NIV 2011
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands.
Jesus revealed to His disciples He was the Messiah. John 3:15, “That everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.” John’s letter repeated much the same reminder. 1 John 4:15, “If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God.” They were born again. 1 John 4:7, “Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” His letter was written to confirm their salvation was eternally safe and secure. Faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ secures sinners salvation.
Walking with Jesus I’ve learned one thing, I need to daily walk by faith. My faith is grounded upon Jesus Christ. This makes my walk easier than those who walk alone. Being sure beyond a shadow of a doubt where I will spend eternity keeps my cup overflowing. Faithfully spending time in God’s Word each day strengthens and supports my faith. Time spent in fellowship with other believers enriches my faith. Praying keeps my line of communication open to the Father. Jesus died to save a sinner like me.
How do our lives reflect our faith?
Secure saved sinners,
