Fellowship of Obedience
Ronnie Evans continues his look through the Epistle of John which reminds us that the evidence of our fellowship with God is how we keep His commandments. Whilst we abide in Him obedience is no burden, as we are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit; and we are incapable of hating our brother, or even our enemies and those who persecute us. Instead, do we have a heart for those who hate us, do we pray that they too receive grace and salvation? We should check our love for one another; our love for, and obedience of our God; and our love for our enemies.
