Today’s reading: 1 John 2:28 – 3:10

Being born of God behooves the Believer to practice God’s righteousness. There will be fellowship with God because His seed abides within. The Christian will not deliberately break God’s law or defy God’s Word.

Jesus said, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Not only has God’s love been revealed, He has given the gift of life — eternal life. The Day of the Lord will come like a thief, yet God does not want anyone to perish. He is patient, wanting everyone to come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9-10).

When the Day of the Lord comes the heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire. And the earth and everything in it will be laid bare (2 Peter 3:10).

Anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, neither the one who does not love his brother. Abide in Him with confidence and practice righteousness. Now we are children of God and when He appears we shall be like Him.

Thought for today: We are children of God and His seed abides within so that we can fellowship with Him.

O, Lord God, what love! You have bestowed Your heavenly blessings abundantly!
