'ARE YOU HIS?'

"I am the good Shepherd, and know My sheep, and am known of Mine" - John 10:14
.
A father knows his true children and legitimate children knows who their father is. Many claim to be God's children but of a truth, they're not.
.
Being born into a Christian family does not make you a child of God, neither does going to church or having a 'Christian', name make you one either. It's better you ask yourself this question and know your fate now!
.
How can you know if you're truly His? A true child receives and believes everything his father says or does (John 1:11-12). If you're still selective of His gospel or doctrine to accept, you're not His.
.
Those who are His will hear His voice, He calls them by name, they know His voice and they'll follow Him (not church, religion or denomination) - John 10:3-4. If you're His, His spirit in you will bear witness in your spirit that you're a child of God (Rom. 8:16).
.
Those who are His are called His disciples and continues in His word. They choose to be His disciple than to be named a 'Christian' who is only religious (John 8:31).
.
If you are truly His, you'll love Him, not just verbally but in deed. You will know His commandments and obey them (John 14:21).
.
Are you truly His? If you are, the world will hate you and you will also hate the world (John 15:19; 1 John 2:15). You cannot be a true child of God and would be in the good books of the world. It's not that you're making enemies but they will make you an enemy for not complying to their way of life.
.
Examine your life brothers and sisters, judge yourself now to know if you're truly His before He tells you to depart from Him because you work iniquity (Matt. 7:23) on that day when there will be no room for repentance.
