1 John 3:10 (NET) By this the children of God and the children of the devil are revealed: Everyone who does not practice righteousness – the one who does not love his fellow Christian – is not of God.
Freda and Jane were close friends. They were both 17 when they got into campus. They were both innocent, adventurous, and naive. Freda joined a campus fellowship that was very sound and that had a strong Bible Study emphasis. She joined this fellowship because Shade, her roommate who lived an exemplary Christian life, invited her. But Benard, one of her classmates, invited both her and Jane to join his campus fellowship. This fellowship was more “hip” and “trending”. She hesitated because this same boy was known to be a cheat during tests and exams. Unlike Freda, Jane didn’t mind that Bernard’s conduct left much to be desired. She honored his invitation and started attending his fellowship. According to her, “their music is way better”. Little did Jane know that she was walking into a trap.
Freda was able to keep herself from corruption on that campus because she understood a basic truth that many believers have failed to understand and gotten into needless trouble. Freda understood that anyone who claimed to be a child of God, but who was walking in visible unrighteousness, was not to be trusted as a child of God.
If someone claims to be a Child of God, but you have noticed that, for example, she tells lies quite easily and normally, you will find out through much more serious things she is not a child of God when you make the mistake of committing yourself to her in the belief that she is a child of God.
Go into today remembering the wisdom in today’s Bible verses. Anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, [no matter how much Christianise they speak, or how long they have served in the church]. Know this truth and know peace.
