5.8.20 – Daily Dose of Worship. 1 John 2:3-7. Casual.

PRAYER: Please pray for those tonight on our livestream. Uncertainty and direction are needed.

DEVOTION: “And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” – ‭‭1 John‬ ‭2:3-6‬

Those who obey. Those who listen and act. Those who are responsible with the teaching and commands of the Bible.

This is the call. This is how we’re supposed to be a reflection of Jesus in this world. By obeying and acting on His word.

It takes more than just being a casual Christian. I remember years ago a song by DeGarmo and Key. “I don’t want to be a casual Christian”.

Here’s one of the keys to not being a casual Christian. Obeying the word. Obeying the Bible. Putting what we read and learn into practice.

One of the reasons we dig into these devotions is to hear His voice. Hear His words.

Today. Listen. Let’s not be casual.

    My Mom has a kind but firm way of reminding me that Christ died for the other person too…sigh…that pretty much kills the complaining rant. Sometimes that rubs like sandpaper but…it’s true…
