Dear children, let us love one another not just with words and speech,
but in deed and truth. 1John3:18
Yes right words are important, yes truth is important
but so are deeds …….
Missing even 1 of those 3 will make a mess
and even cause people to be hurt.
Many Lofty words, claims of knowing truth, published books, well attended conferences, exclusive “invitation only” Theology clubs, popular Movements, superstar famous Christian Leaders…………. nice, but is there present, the fruit of the Spirit?
The Holy Spirit.
The Spirit of Jesus.
By our fruits (deeds) shall we be known.
Each tree is recognized by its own fruit….. by their fruit you shall know them.
Fruit of love.
Fruit of kindness.
Fruit of gentleness.
Fruit of courage in the face of fearful trials (a manifestation of faith).
“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”
(The power of God to manifest the deeds.)
These who deny the power thereof, do not just act religious and talk religious, and perhaps verbally deny the power of God….they deny it with their actions; there is no demonstration in them, of the power of God.
Which comes from the Holy Spirit of God.
……These who deny the power thereof…………. :
From such turn away.
