I woke up yesterday morning hearing a teaching that convicted my heart…thank You Jesus. I had to back pedal to words that I have put out into the public. A while ago I wrote, “We will know Christians by their love”….and I posted a song to go along with it. The melody was beautiful” even the message behind it was strong (to a seasoned desciple of Christ whom would understand the fundamentals of Christian love….). However, the song that I posted, as recently discovered, is not brand new, nor does it tell the truth, entirely, of how “Real Christians“, are known. Here is some scripture to back up my claims:
” 16. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17. Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth fourth evil fruit. 18. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”
That’s it. I value conviction and correction. If I’m wrong…I’m wrong. One last scripture then I’m moving on.
(John 13:35) ” By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
