Do You Know Him?

“We know that we have come to know Him if we keep His commands. Whoever says, “I know Him,” but does not do what He commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys His word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in Him: Whoever claims to live in Him must live as Jesus did.” (1 John 2:3-6, NIV)

No human being is without sin. We will never be perfect. So how will we ever be able to say, “I know Him”? Perhaps it’s better for us to say, “I’m getting to know Him better and better every day. I’m studying the way Christ lived and I’m devoting my life to becoming more like Him! With the help of the Holy Spirit I am able to defeat many of the sins that once held me back. I am aware that I have a long way to go, but I am now focused on living my life for Him.”

The more we learn to obey His word and the more we do the things that He commands, the more our love for God is made complete. Don’t ever give up! Living for Christ Jesus means living for eternity!

Enjoy your Thursday, “Working for Christ”!
