“And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” 1 John 2:3-6 NLT
The certainty of knowing God coincides with how well we obey what He says. When we obey God's word we are demonstrating just how much we love Him. It is in fact a declaration and demonstration of how much we trust Him.
Knowing that we are living in God occurs when we live as Jesus lived. “Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.” 2 Thessalonians 1:12 NLT
When we walk with the Lord
In the light of His word
What a glory He sheds on our way
While we do His good will
He abides with us still
And with all who will trust and obey
Trust and obey
For there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus
But to trust and obey
( John H. Sammie, 1887)
He is worthy of your trust and obedience.
