And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, and God in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.
When belief leads to trust and trust leads to commitment and commitment leads to obedience and obedience leads to faith, the results produced by the indwelling Spirit are the evidence of my transformation. The essence of James 2:18. A sweet, sweet aroma unto the LORD, God the Almighty.
