Who am I? In Christ, I am redeemed; made whole; made a new creation by His sacrifice in my place on the cross. Though I am not perfect, He is my righteousness. Any good in me is clearly because of Him and because of His Spirit living in me.
1 John 1-5
1 John 3:16-24
"We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whosoever has the world's goods, and beholds his brother in need, and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?"
"Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth."
Am I obeying his commandments?
Am I showing love with what I do?
