Sometimes we need to stop and get back to basics. John, at the very start of this paragraph, is essentially saying “Folks, let’s cut to the chase, ‘cause we are out of time.”
It’s time to ask the hard questions…am I a true follower of Jesus? Do I really have His Spirit working in my life? What evidence is there in my life that proves my faith in Jesus is real? Am I actually doing what He wants? Do I know what He wants? Is there a daily friendship with Jesus – is there ‘fellowship’? Do I have this eternal life that He is offering me?
Lord, please work on me today – and keeping working on me until I can say a resounding “YES” to all these questions. Amen
