Belief Obeys

John 3:36 -“He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” I was focusing on that verse this week and wanted to share it with you. There is a contrast in John 3:36. The contrast is not belief versus unbelief, but it is belief versus disobedience. That means that we should be able to identify true believers simply by looking at their lives. The way one lives will reveal their status as a believer. Faith obeys God. Many people morally know the truth or affirm accurate facts, but they don’t believe it enough to change their lifestyle. People who made a one-time decision of “faith” and yet their lifestyle lacks evidence of outward obedience need to heed the warning this verse gives. It’s the ones who follow that truly believe. So who are you following? Eternal life depends upon it.
