Believe or live out?

If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. (1 John 1:6 NIVUK)

This is a very short blog - but, in this case, the length is inversely proportional to its impact....

If we make claims to be a Christian and therefore to be 'in fellowship' with Jesus but find ourselves not walking in that way, John does contest our 'belief' in the truth, he simply asserts what he observes:
that 'we do not live out the truth' ......
and that for me is challenging, simple and powerful.
