1 JOHN 5:1-2

“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God. And everyone who loves the Father loves his children, too. We know we love God’s children if we love God and obey his commandments.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭5:1-2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Christians today say you only have to believe then you’ll go to heaven, but isn’t it more than that? We are to obey God’s commands. We’re to believe and follow God and his commands. We’re to glorify him in our lives and to give our lives up to him. This is the struggle for people. To sacrifice yourself, to give yourself to God. This is love, to sacrifice. Again this is called agape love, it’s self sacrificial. So fellow believers look in your lives and see what you haven’t given to God. Pray for God to work within you and mold you into the person he wants you to be.
