The qualities present in the life of every believer:
1. They believe on Jesus Christ as Savior.
Jn 10:26-29 “But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.”
2. They hear His voice; therefore, they are listening for His voice.
“My sheep hear my voice,”
3. They have a real and personal relationship with Jesus.
“and I know them, and they follow me:”
4. They have assurance of eternal life.
“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.”
LESSON - These qualities separate them who might identify themselves as Christians from those who are genuine followers of Jesus Christ. The Judaizers would have identified themselves as followers of God, but Jesus revealed to them that their religion lacked a relationship. How would you characterize your relationship with God? Only what’s REAL will last for eternity!
