In I John (4:1-3) we are reminded that there are distractions that try to lead us astray. To avoid going the wrong way, we are given a simple test to evaluate what we are hearing. The test has one important question: Does the source claim that Jesus came to earth from God? The first thing we are looking for is the source truly claiming, "yes." We should also compare the claims to what we know are the true teachings of the Bible. Once we have tested the source, then we can be reassured about the message.
Don't be easily persuaded. Check and test the source before believing the message.
Thank You for Your Word and Your unchanging message of love and redemption. Help me to always check the source before believing the message. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
