Some of us are sincere, but we’re sometimes misdirected in our pursuit of walking like Christ. Knowing Jesus is not about attending church on the weekend, singing praises, and paying tithes only to forsake the Word during the week. Knowing Jesus is not about keeping the good news to ourselves. It’s also not about memorizing the Bible and quoting scriptures to dazzle our peers.
The apostle John explains how we can tell if we really know Jesus:
1 John 2:3-6King James Version (KJV)
3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
We must set our hearts on REALLY knowing Jesus. We cannot select from the Word of God what appeals to us and reject the rest. Make sure to spend time reading and studying the Word on a daily, meditate on scriptures, and pray. Walk with Jesus today as if He was your best friend.
