Believers are Obeyers

Onward Christian Soldiers #13 | with Daniel Whyte III

1 John 2:3-4 says, “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”

During our last time together we talked about how you can know that you are saved for sure. Well, one evidence that we are truly born again is that we have a new heart towards obeying God. Before we were saved, we did not love God or want to obey Him. Now that we are saved, we love Him and want to obey Him.

A new Christian may not know much of God’s Word and what God wants him to do, but he will want to obey God. Believers are obeyers! First John 2:3-4 says that we show our love for the Lord Jesus by obeying Him. Jesus Christ also said in John 14:15, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

Today, let’s consider three ways in which all believers, but especially new believers, can obey the Lord.
