I John 2:4 ” The man who says, ‘I know Him,’ but does not do what He commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”

It’s very simple – “If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth.” (I John 1:6-8) That person may appear to be a pillar of the Church and Community… yet in the shroud of night shadows watch porn on his computer. Another may teach Bible Studies and be well respected by all…yet emotionally cheat on her husband. We may think we’re getting away with it and that no one knows…but we’re only fooling ourselves…and admit it, deep down we know it and so does God. For the bottom line is, to know God is to obey Him, but if we continue in our double standard charade, John admonishes us to remember this harsh reality, “No one who continues to sin has either seen Him or knows Him.” (I John 3:6) So can you say with utmost confidence today, “I know Him.” ??
