I read 1 John 2 as a part of my devotions this morning. It is amazing how sometimes so much can be packed into two verses.
“But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” 1 John 2:5-6 NLT
Two very important truths jumped out at me as I read these verses.
1. Obeying God’s Word shows how completely we love Him.
2. Those who say they live in God should live like Jesus did.
Obedience to God’s Word and living like Jesus. If we all did this, the world would be a much better place to live.
Let us all purpose in our hearts to love God and live in Him by doing these two things from 1 John 2 today.
