BY THEIR FRUITS

1 John 2:4-5

If someone claims, "I know God," but doesn't obey God's commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth.

NLT

Steve was very unsuspecting in all their business deals because he and Segun were members of the same church. Unknown to Steve, Segun used every opportunity to defraud him; there was a time he even faked Steve’s signature to make major cash withdrawals. Steve was devastated because he always assumed he was in business with a brother.

There are so many people that openly profess Christianity for convenience. Jesus knew this and He gave us a way to identify such people. He said we shall know them by their fruits, he didn’t say we shall know them by their words. The fruit of the spirit cannot be faked, at least not to a man of the spirit.

This first manifestation of this fruit is love; love for God characterized by devotion, accountability and commitment to God. Anyone who loves God will serve Him, no matter where he is or the nature of his work. Secondly, it is impossible for someone who is born of God to be constantly selfish; he will have unselfish love for his neighbor (see 1 John 4:7-8).

Go into today knowing that you are not to be deceived but you have been armed with the ability to identify the sheep from the wolf wearing sheep clothing.

Prayer: heavenly father, I thank you for today. I confess that I am walking in the light, and my light shines brighter and brighter, and darkness cannot stand my light, in Jesus name. Amen
