Proof Your Faith is Real: Evidence of a True Believer

There is Evidence of God Working in Your Life: A believer’s life will display evidence of God working. If you look at the past year of your life, you should be able to recall instances where God had his hand in your life. Where he used you to minister to others, where He worked something out for you.

There is a Desire to Sin No More: In Romans 6:1, the Scripture says, “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase.” The passage goes on to answer no, this is not of God. When we become a believer and give our lives to God, by asking Jesus to come into our hearts and forgive our sins, we will desire a sinless life. Now, it’s important to remember that no one is perfect, so we can’t obtain a sinless life. However, sin should bother us now more than before. Therefore, proof of genuine faith is a desire to sin no more.

There Are Fruits: In Matthew 7:15-20 Jesus explains that we will be known by our fruits just as a plant is known by the fruits blooming on its branched. Verse 17 says, “Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.” The passage goes on to conclude with verse 20, “Therefore by their fruits, you will know them.”
