15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him,because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
Someone recently told me the true litmus test on your relationship with Christ is obedience. If you love Him you will obey Him. This may sound easy, but it is not. Every thought, every action, every attitude has to be Christ centered. We will fail, but we must ask Him to give us the grace and the strength to do His will. He will bring us closer to Him and closer to how He wants us to be. We cannot do it alone, we must give it all to Him, trust Him and obey.
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.”
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
1 John 3:18
Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist — he denies the Father and the Son.
1 John 2:22
It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us.
2 John 1:4
If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God.
