Dan 8:1-27 / 1 John 2:1-17 / 120:1-7 / 28:25-26
1 John 2:3-5
“Now, by this we know that we know Him, if we keep his commandments. He who says, “I know Him” and does not keep His commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.
The best indicator of what we believe is how we behave – our actions, the things we do, our lifestyle. If we say we believe one thing and live the opposite way, we are double-minded – one foot in, one foot out, unstable, tossed by the wind. God calls us to make a CLEAR CHOICE to follow Him…no mixture, no wishy-washy roller coaster living.
He’s given us everything we need so we can stand with both feet on Him - our Rock, our firm foundation. As we glow closer and closer to our Heavenly Father, our behavior and lifestyle will begin to line up with His ways and there will be less and less confusion as to what it is we believe or who we belong to. The authentic fruit of our lives will clearly reveal a life devoted to the Lord as we trust and obey.
