Sing praise to God who reigns above
My faith looks up to Thee
O word of God Incarnate
Have thine own way Lord
Be thou my vision
Take the name of Jesus with you
Thanks we give and adoration
13 By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
Some folks think one can't have assurance of salvation, but scripture tells us that we can.
We can have assurance because we have the Spirit of Truth.
We know him because he dwells in all those that know the Lord.
If we have fellowship with God then we are children of God.
If we are a child of God his Spirit dwells within us.
This is also how we test the teachers. Test to see if they are from God. If they have the Spirit of God then they will teach the truth of God as recorded in the scriptures, they will love the people of faith,
If you have the Spirit of God in you will see it in what you do and in what you testify too.
It will acknowledge that there is only one Saviour of the world
If you confess Jesus, his Spirit dwells in you. Your belief makes it so.
Trust this truth for yourself.
By seeing what you believe you know that the Spirit lives in you.
God's love abides in us.
If God's love isn't there, something isn't right. As this love is part of the fruit of the Spirit.
Do you see yourself treating others better because of your faith in God?
Do you God's love growing in you?
If so, that's God's Spirit at work in your life.
God's Spirit works out God's love more in our lives every day.
