'By this we know that we know Him'


And by this we know that we know him: if we keep his commandments. He who says, “I know him,” and does not keep his commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. 1 John 2:3-4

If one is a Christian — if he is truly sorry for His sins and looks in faith to Christ Jesus and His cross for pardon and forgiveness — he will then seek to keep Jesus’ commandments and live in accord with God’s Word. One who claims to know Jesus Christ and trust in Him but disregards His commandments is a liar and not a true believer.

Grant that I truly repent of my sins and look to you in faith, O Jesus, that I may have forgiveness for all my sins and walk in accord with Your Word. Amen.
