1 John 5:1-6 1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the parent loves the child. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. 3 For the love of God is this, that we obey his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome, 4 for whatever is born of God conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world, our faith. 5 Who is it that conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? Testimony concerning the Son of God6 This is the one who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only but with the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one that testifies, for the Spirit is the truth
We claim that Yeshua is the Anointed One of Israel, so we seek to follow the Way that Yeshua lived and taught. In order to do that we attend to that unheard inner voice that we claim in the name of God. Perhaps. We discern the directional arrow of that calling and shape our response to resonate with the persistence of love which reaches out toward the least, the last, the lost, and the left out. The audacity of God leaves the response totally in our hands. Our audacity is to act in such a manner that God becomes a living reality in and through our response. Staying focused on that inner voice of insistence and obedient response to that calling is our testimony concerning the Anointed One of Israel. Yeshua represents what life is to be when lived fully in response to insistence in the name of God. Perhaps. We strive to live in that same Spirit.
