MORNINGTIME 3274 
 
Whosoever BELIEVETH that Jesus is the Christ is BORN of God: and every one that LOVETH him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is born of God OVERCOMETH the world: and this is the VICTORY that OVERCOMETH THE WORLD, even our FAITH. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that BELIEVETH that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:1-5. This is an example of circular reasoning. If you love, you'll believe, if you believe you'll obey, if you obey you'll overcome, if you overcome you'll love, and around and around it goes, love, believe, obey, overcome, and back to love. Very simple, very precise, AND VERY DEMANDING. If you Believe ANY of this, you'll Believe ALL of this. AND ALL OF THIS WILL BE A GROWING PART INFUSED INTO YOUR 24/7/365 LIFE. Whether you're a brand new baby Christian, or a well seasoned pillar of the church, Love, Obedience, Faith, Overcoming, and Love will all be evident in your Life of Growing in Christ. And the word Believe isn't some cheap one time confession and forgotten, IT'S CHRIST RUNNING RAMPANT THROUGHOUT ALL ASPECTS OF YOUR LIFE. The up front confession of, "I love Jesus" is a good start, but it WILL grow into all aspects of your daily Walk with Christ. As you Love Christ, your hate for others will fall away, you will forgive them, and you will grow to pray for them, NO MATTER HOW BADLY THEY HURT YOU. Yes, some of these things take time, BUT THEY WILL COME TO PASS. Take a week, 7 days, and don't say or speak anything about you being a Christian. During those 7 days will your life reflect Christ to others? Will they see that Christ is truly in you? Or is your "christian walk" nothing BUT words??? What's your weak link in this circular chain of Growing In Love With Christ? Work on it, and, Be Blessed.
