My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. – 1 John 3:18

*   *   *

There are those who profess faith and those who possess faith – one has the words; the other, the anointing and power.

*   *   *

For the Lord is that Spirit. Wherefore he bids them Examine themselves whether they be in the Faith; prove your ownselves, saith he, know you not your ownselves, how that Christ is in you, except you be Reprobates. And hereby know we that we are not in a reprobate State, because we witness the Spirit of Christ dwelling in us. (Elizabeth Bathurst, 1655?-1685)
