3 Changes after Christ Saves You p4

February 14, 2011

Last week I was talking about how there must be changes after Christ saves you. In fact these changes prove that something has happened in your heart… you do not have to do them to be saved, but they do tell the story of Christ has changed your life. In fact I would go as far as to say that if these changes are not taking place in your life I would question whether you are in fact saved. But before we go down that path, I wanted to finish this series of posts. The last change I see happening is our love for others should increase.

Our love for others increases-

Some of us have the tendency to act like we have it all together once we are saved or believe in Christ. We battle between separating ourselves from the sin or things that let us fall into sin, and not acting like we are better than everyone. Once we experience the love of Christ, we then should be compelled to love others…

·  1 John 3:14

We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. Whoever does not love abides in death.

·  1 John 3:16

By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.

·  1 John 3:17

But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?

·  1 John 3:23

And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us.
