1 John 4:15
Whoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him, and he in God.
This implies —
1. A deep and living conviction, a true perception of mind and heart, that "Jesus Christ is the propitiation for our sins" and the only Saviour for lost mankind.
2. A vital belief in His salvation, in the efficacy of His blood, and the power of His grace.
3. A hearty and full acceptance of the gospel of the Son of God; a resting in all the doctrines, a waiting for all the promises, an observance of all the ordinances, an obedience to all the commandments.
4. A proclaiming of the Lord as our Divine Redeemer in the face of the world.
(J. Slade, M. A.)
