Christianity is not just about believing in Christ and being saved by faith, but it is also about showing godliness through our deeds. Holiness is not an option, but an inevitable fruit of Christian faith. Growing in holiness is an evidence that we are indeed God’s children.
The Bible constantly reminds its readers to beware of false prophets and false teachers. But it also reminds of false conversions or people who profess faith in Christ, but from the inside they are not genuine Christians. In this passage, we learn how to identify a true disciple of Jesus Christ.
