I run into so many “Christians” who profess to be “saved” because they BELIEVE in Jesus with all their heart. Yet their works deny Jesus due to their disobedience. (See Titus 1:16)
Fellow Christians, we aren’t “saved” because we “BELIEVE” in Jesus with all our heart. The Apostle James said, “You BELIEVE that there is one God. You do well. **Even the demons BELIEVE**—and tremble!” (James 2:19 NKJV)
See, demons believe in Jesus but are not saved! Why? Because they do not obey God’s commands.
So how do we know we are “saved”? We OBEY! Jesus said, “Anyone who loves me will OBEY my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not OBEY my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.” (John 14:23-24 NIV)
