1 John 4:1-3 teaches us to discern the spirits. For example a person can declare grace; but still maintain a law mentality. This is why discernment is so vital. Discernment is the God given ability to interpret what one sees or hears. Discernment becomes sharper as the light of Christ’s finished work increases in a person’s understanding. In other words; the more familiar I am with the genuine, the more I can recognize a counterfeit. Light is greater than darkness and will dispel it. As you grow in your understanding of all that Jesus accomplished, you will find yourself having more confidence in the Holy Spirit’s power to lead, than anyone’s ability to deceive. You ARE blessed.
