The Best of the Portals of Prayer

Read: 1st John 3:7-10

“Little children, let us not love in word or talk, but in deed and in truth. ”
1st John 3:18

Creed and Deed

Have you ever wondered if you are really a Christian? Apply this test. Do I trust in Christ 100% for my salvation? But what about my many failures to love? God knows what is in our hearts. He knows our love. But He also knows what this love is at times – dim and feeble.
Two things, says John, every Christian must do. One is to believe that Jesus Christ is God’s Son and His Savior. The other is to love their fellow man. Christian life depends on right belief and then, right conduct. Pure doctrine and pure life go together.
We begin the Christian life when we receive Christ in baptism. And then, our attitude, is the same as His, an attitude of love. Because He lives in us, we will want to follow Him. In His strength we strive to follow, repent of our sin, and reflect on his love and peace.
