    Verse 4: This shows that God will judge us based on what comes out of our mouths. What we say has an impact on the way that God views us.
  • A disciple
    "This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church." Jesus taught the contentious Jews (John 8) that being Abraham's seed didn't make them Children; but those walking after the same Spirit that Abraham walked those are the true Children. So with respect to being Children of God by faith in Jesus Christ our Lord it is known what kind we are by the kind of behavior and character.
