This post is a follow up of yesterday’s post, . This follow up is a great example of why we need Godly, knowledgeable, wise men in our life. After posting yesterday I received a text from a dear friend, street evangelist, church planter, preacher, pastor, and all-around amazing man of God – he said to call him when I am able.
When I called him he said, “the post was right on in a 1John sort of way”. What he was saying was, yes, the information was correct, and like 1John it is very black and white. 1John makes very stark contrasts as to whether someone is a child of God or a child of the devil.
1John 3:7-10 Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. 8 Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. 9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. 10 By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.
