“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”
- To confess means to “declare faith in or adherence to”. To abide means “to endure without yielding”, “to accept without objection”, and “to remain stable”.
- Do you confess Jesus as the Son of God and as your Lord and Savior?
- Do you abide in God?
- Are you living in love or does another emotion or feeling have control of your life?
1 John 4:17 “By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world.”
