Read 1 John chapter 4


1 John 4:13-14–This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.


Two things testify of the relationship we have with Jesus: our words and our actions. God has given us His Spirit who lives in those who have believed in Him. Through the Spirit, we are able to act in such a way that displays our relationship with God. Secondly, the Spirit gives us the words to speak so that we are telling of our relationship with God to others. Does Christ live in us? If so, our words and actions should both demonstrate that.


Father, I praise You for giving me Your Spirit. I will speak and act today in a way that honors and displays You to everyone I am around. Thank You for Your Spirit that enables me to do that.
