DO YOU KNOW HIM?
1 John 1:3-6
Now 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. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
The scriptures are so clear as to what identifies a person as a christian.
It is simply – those who live like Jesus did on His earthly mission.
KNOW HIM – KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS
It all begins with believing that what God says – He is able to perform.
We obey the word – because we believe the word.
KNOW HIM – HIDE THE TRUTH IN YOUR HEART
Love for the word of God is a clear indicator as to whether you desire to know Him.
Hiding the word in your heart is the way we make a place for Christ the Living Word.
KNOW HIM – ALLOW GOD’S LOVE TO BE PERFECTED IN YOU
The love of God transcends feelings and emotions and is a spiritual force which must be perfected in our lives.
KNOW HIM – BY ABIDING IN HIM
Abiding in Christ – is abiding in His word.
Time in the word – is time spent in the presence of Jesus.
Learn to abide in Him
KNOW HIM – BY WALKING AS JESUS WALKED
Learning to walk in the ways of Jesus – is contrary to the human mind – therefore our mind must be renewed by the word of the Lord.
No word – no walk – no witness.
The word of the Lord in your heart – is the transformation process for all who claim to know Him.
TO KNOW HIM – IS TO KNOW LIFE ETERNAL
