Word for Today:  July 22

 

Evidence

There is only one real fool-proof evidence of the new birth.    Jesus gave this measuring method to us in His Word.  This is the one most important characteristic of the Christian Walk.  Nothing is more important than this.  This one demand and one command is basic.

Jesus talked about it more than anything else and He demonstrated it more perfectly than any other message of His earthly ministry.  He longed to see it in His disciples and He knew that it would be the basis for the New Testament Church.

If the Church is to BE what Jesus died for it to be and if the Church is to do what He died for it to do, then this one thing is absolutely necessary.

I am convinced that this is the greatest need in this hour.   It is perhaps the greatest need in your life as a Believer.  It is not impossible.  It is possible.  It is necessary.  It is vital.  It is fundamental to the continuation of the Gospel on earth.

Jesus called this a “new commandment” in John 13:34.  He knew that He was soon to depart from the earth and He wanted so desperately for His followers to be adequately equipped to carry on His Ministry on earth.  He did not emphasize theology.  He did not emphasize education.  He did not emphasize experience or ability.  He brought attention to the one thing that will guarantee the continued success of the Gospel message.

He also stated that this would be the one qualifying characteristic that would cause the world to know how we stand with God.

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples…  John 13:35.

By this….  This is the one thing that will show the world where you stand with God.  And this is the greatest thing needed in the Christian Faith today.  This One Thing is

LOVE

 

He that loveth not knoweth not God for God is Love…  I John 4:8
