Scripture of the Day - September 30, 2012

1 John 2:4  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

The Word of God cuts right to the chase, gets right to the nitty gritty, doesn't hold back any punches. It is what it is and that's that! You either follow Christ or you don't. You are either His or you're not. We may have some people fooled, we may even have ourselves fooled but Jesus knows who are His. It's a very dangerous thing to pretend to be a Christian, to pretend to know Christ. You can be the greatest Christian orator in the world and still not KNOW Jesus. You can go to church every Sunday, warming the same pew, and still not KNOW Him. 
You see, if you refuse to keep His commandments the truth is not in you. If you refuse to submit your will to His the truth is not in you. If you insist on doing things your way and not follow the example Jesus set for us the truth is not in you. It doesn't matter what you were born like, it doesn't matter what your personality is like, Jesus expects ALL who claim to KNOW Him to actually obey His commandments... ALL OF THEM. This business of "that's not for today' is a lie from the pit of hell. What Jesus commanded when He walked the earth is the same that He commands today. He does not change.
