We are living in a time that, if you are a Christian, it is more important than ever to remain faithful to God.

In the First Epistle of John, chapter one, verse six, John says, “If we say we have fellowship with Christ and walk in darkness, we lie and do not the truth.”

Verse seven goes on to say, “But if we walk in the light as Christ is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, God’s son, cleanses us from all sin.”

It is impossible for us to live the Christian life without Christ living in us. In First John chapter two, verses 15 and 16, the Bible says: “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world…”

John declares in verse 22 that whoever denies that Jesus is not the Christ is himself anti-christ, and he denies the son and the father.

Verses 23 through 25 state that “Whosoever denies the son has not the father because he that acknowledges the son hath the father also.”

John closes chapter two of First John (verses 26 through 29): “These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.”

“But the anointing which you have received of Him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in Him.

And now, little children, abide in Him that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.

If you know that He is righteous, you know that every one that does righteousness is born of Him.
