Live in Him = Walking with Him (1 John 2:3-11)

There is Christ-like evidence in someone who is born-again. All those adopted into God’s family through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ are beloved by the Father. John 1:12; Romans 8:15

A true Christian can have the blessed assurance in their daily experience that their salvation is real by being obedient to the Word of God. There will be a desire to please God.

Authentic Believers, like trees, will produce fruit. Whoever says, “I have come to know Him,” but does not habitually keep focused on His precepts and obey His commandments, is a liar, and the truth of the divine word is not in him. Friends – don’t let friends be religious liars. Matthew 7:15-23; Galatians 5:16-26

Obedience to God’s Word is the best and only way of living for a Christ follower. Whoever habitually keeps God’s Word and obeys His precepts, is being completed and is reaching maturity. John 14:21-24

Jesus is the professing Christian’s example of living; Believers must be about the Father’s business and desire to do the Father’s will. Luke 2:49

Loving the Beloved will supernaturally occur when Christians walk in consistent fellowship with Christ. They will not intentionally hurt the cause of Christ or lead others to sin. John 13:34-35

Hatred for the Beloved happens naturally because the love and the light of Christ does not dwell in an individual. This person is blinded by the darkness of sin. The natural man never wants to keep the commands of God.

Are you in the Beloved?
Do you love the Beloved?
