And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments (1 John 2:3).
This particular text of scripture is clear… those who confess to be Christians intentionally obey God. This is the dividing line for those who say I serve Him and those who don’t. You see in order to be a Christian and walk in the power of God it’s not about how well we sing or how well our preaching sounds, or even how well we can speak in tongues. It’s really about how well we obey and the motives of our heart when we do obey. The Apostle John makes it clear when he says “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments” (1 John 2:3).
So the question is:can you say that you know him? If your level of obedience is not something you have committed to on a regular and consistent basis with God, then the scripture says you don’t know Jesus, and he certainly doesn’t know you.
God Bless You
