The Bible says:
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
John 14:15 KJV
That’s The litmus test.
I’ve set in the funeral home with dear friends . I knew their life and they would tell me ” I’m Saved”.
Saved…. ? Well, if you say so. I’m not a judge. But there’s this scripture verse you need to remember….
“Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”
Matthew 7:20 KJV
There was a problem with the choice of Israel’s new King.
Saul was an obvious choice….’that is if you looked at it from the worlds point of view.
See, the world looks at the outside.
But God looks somewhere else.
He looks on the heart. The Heart.
And Children…God does not get confused. He sees what’s inside as Bill Shaw used to sing.
What does God see? He sees the broken. He sees the hurt, and the pain. But he also sees the evil.
David wrote search me Lord. Try my reins and see if there be any wicked way in me….
Until you are willing to give up the sin, till you are willing to let God search your heart and You repent of whatever it is that He finds……
Then…..can you…. really say you love God?
Help them Lord I pray.
