When God looks at a man and sees Jesus in him, then He walks with him.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. #Galatians2vs20 KJV
And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit. 2Corinthians3vs18 #AMP
Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. #John14vs23#KJV
The Need For Knowledge, Wisdom And Understanding Of God
A man that lacks the knowledge of who God is and the word of God is a man at the mercies of the devil. For how can a man claim to have faith in a God he know nothing about? (#Romans10vs17). How can a man fight the wicked (#Ephesians6vs10to18, #James4vs7) if he does not have an understanding of God's word?
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee...", Hosea 4:6 KJV. A man that is not interested in the things of God should not expect God to be interested in his life. (#James4vs8).
There's a great need to seek the understanding of God word least one become the enemy's prey.
When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. #Matthew13vs19 KJV
You are either with God or on the wayside of life where anything can happen to you.
You must continually seek God's knowledge, wisdom and understanding.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. #Proverbs4vs7 KJV
Am a Christian or just a church goer? Do I actually worship God in spirit and in truth or I just sway and cry to the beautiful voices of the choir and the crazy beats of the instrumentalists? Am I working for God or just trying to get the approval of men? Does my life actually reflect Christ or I am just trying to sway men? Do I really know God? Does my actions indicate the fear and love for God? When I shout "Jesus is coming soon", do I do it for my passion for lost souls or because that is what I was taught to say during evangelism? I say, I preach and sing "I love Jesus" but do I act it out? When I post Christian stuffs, do I do it out of love for Christ, or I want my friends to think I am born again? Am I even sure I am genuinely born again? When I see sinners, what come to my mind? Is mockery for them or the pain that they may go to hell fire? *Am I truly a Christian?* When you say that you are Christian, it mean every part of you reflects Christ, from thoughts to actions. Oh you pray, you attend church services, You are a dedicated worker in God's house, you preach Jesus. Okay, fine and good but is it enough to call yourself a Christian?
You ask yourself.
Do you have the fruit of the spirit in you, which is the criteria for eternal life; are you ready to submit to God, which is the criteria for intimacy with him and spiritual growth. If we say we live in God, we must live the way Jesus lived. 1 John. 2:6 ERV ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?
