05/20 1 John 2:3-5
And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. 4 If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. 5 But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him.
In Christ we are new creatures. We have a new life now. We think different. We live different. Everything about us is changed. If we are not different than we were we are not changed and are not His children.
