Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed;
– John 8:31
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
If we want to truly follow God, we should always read God’s word, not stray from God’s word in whatever circumstances at any time, and behave ourselves according to God’s word. After experiencing much God’s work, we will get some knowledge of God’s word, be able to touchin our experience, take God’s word as our life and live totally by God’s word. Regardless of whatever we encounter, if we can act in accordance with God’s will, we will gain real life. Taking “being honest” for example, when something related to our interests occurs to us, a war starts within us, “Do I tell lies or the truth?” After praying several times, we just forsake our interests and speak the truth. Though we act as an honest person on this matter, it doesn’t represent that we can act in many circumstances. After a few years of experience, we will be able to speak honestly without , and will have a feeling of pain and reproach inside for lying. After getting along with us for a period of time, when the people around us and brothers and sisters can trust in us, and treat us as an honest person, it will mean that we are living relying on God’s word.
