Who do you belong to?


As believers on track, it is vitally important that we remain "on track" in our Christian walk. As we have read through 1 John over that past couple weeks, we have constantly been reminded what it means to truly be of God and how to identify when someone does not belong to Him. That's why it is so important for us to read the Bible. When we do, things that may have seemed "politically incorrect" or "ambiguous" beforehand suddenly seem quite clear.

7 Dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous. 8 But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. 9 Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God. 10 So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God. (1 John 3:7-10, NLT)

The world will try to make you feel that you are being "extra" or "old fashioned" for living a righteous life. They will even try to throw "love" in your face claiming that Christians are supposed to love. However, we know that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. His word has not changed, His standard has not changed. We are supposed to be recognised by our love for ONE ANOTHER, not the world. We are supposed to love people, not sin. Too many who call themselves "Christians" are happy to live exactly as the world does, in sin and deception.

The scripture above reveals that we cannot continue sinning when God lives in us. As children of God, sin is no longer our nature. This doesn't mean you will never feel tempted or stumble at times, but it means you do not pursue sin, you do not live there or call what is wrong, right.
