Christ; our identity.

[The Glory Unveiled]

Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did. ( 1 John 2:6 )

The Christian walk, though a walk of faith, has definite signs that testify that one is a child of God. The Christian is one who lives in God. In other words, God is the home and the abode of the Believer. But the scripture says that whoever claims to live in God must live as Jesus lived. Our life must resemble the life of Christ. And how do we know the life that Jesus lived except through the word of God. Jesus kept the commands of the Father. And the Bible says that we know the Father if we obey His commandments (1John 2:3). If we say we know Him but refuse to do what He commands, then we are liars. Living in God and knowing God has to do with obedience to the word of God. We cannot know God nor live in Him apart from His word. This is the reality of the life we have been called into. If we live in God, our lives must speak His word. This is the bedrock of our identity with Him. Instead of saying we live in Him, we must just live as He lived and we wouldn’t have to say anything.

Prayer_Bead: Gracious Lord, thank you for the wonderful opportunity to identify with you. May my life resound your word as I walk in obedience to you.
