If we say we have fellowship with Him, and keep walking in darkness, we are lying and do not practice the truth. (TLV) I John 1:6 Nosh: Although spoken words of love are important, love comes alive through the things we do for others and therefore is best expressed in actions. In the same way, God knows we love Him when we seek to act obediently to his commands and direction. Obedience is much more than a performed duty. It is an act of love that deepens fellowship and intimacy with God.
