Christian Devotional – July 9, 2014

Read 1 John chapter 4


1 John 4:2–This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God; every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God.


Jesus Christ is God and He came in the flesh to live among us and be the sacrifice to fulfill God’s plan to provide for the salvation of those who believe. This is truth. The Spirit of God acknowledges that truth and professes that truth and always encourages actions that declare that truth. Anything else is from the evil one. These false spirits may try any and all sorts of deception, but when it comes down to it, only the Spirit of God will acknowledge and lead in God’s truth. We can use this as a measure for everything that we are encouraged to do during the day. Does it meet this standard of truth?


Father, You will only ever encourage me to do things that are in line with Your truth. You have made a way for me and Your truth will always lead me. I will follow Your truth and will seek to test everything according to Your truth today. Keep my eyes open and my heart attuned to Your truth.
