'By this we know that we know Him'


By this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. Whoever 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 and His cross for pardon and forgiveness — he will then seek to keep His commandments and live in accord with His 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 my sins and walk in accord with Your Word. Amen.
