30 SECOND DEVOTIONAL 1 JOHN 2:5 THOSE THAT KNOW CHRIST KEEP HIS WORD

00:0000:00

1 John 2:5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

 1 John 2:5 says But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected or completed in him. By this we know that we are in Him. The word but in verse 5 shows that John is contrasting true believers in verse 5 with the false in verse 4, those who say, versus those who do the will of God.  This means if we are habitually practicing righteousness, then our love for God has been worked out in our lives through our obedience. This means we can know for sure that we are saved because we are living out the life of Christ because He is our Lord and Savior.
