30 SECOND DEVOTIONAL 1 JOHN 2:6 THOSE THAT KNOW CHRIST DEMONSTRATE WHO HE IS BY THEIR LIFE

00:0000:00

1 John 2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

1 John 2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.  John is saying that the person who abides is one that is saved and has a close, intimate, and permanent relationship with Christ.  And because of that relationship we need to practice a life of obedience by living the same way Christ did.  The word walk means a habitual practicing of a certain way of life.  Here it is imitating Christ’s life.  Jesus said in John 15:5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. The only way we can truly live the life of Christ is if we are really saved and walking close to Him.
