The Apostle John writes, if someone says that knows the God but does not keep His commandments is a liar. Today, many people say that they know God, but the tree is recognizable by its fruits. Investigate their lives, look if they observe the God’s Word and follow the Lord?
The Lord entrusted to us His commandments. For example: “love one other”, “bless them that curse you”, “whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them”, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel of Kingdom…”. Maybe reading these lines you agree and say “Oh yes, true words”. However a question arises, whether you fulfill the commandments or not.
The God’s Word calls a liar the person who says he knows God but does not keep His commandments. I assure you if a person really knows the Lord he would keep His commandments, because the commandments include love, salvation and peace.
Therefore, beloved, if you don’t keep the commandments of God, then you do now know the Lord very well. Start praying for a true meeting with God from today, more read the Bible; meditate upon the nature and character of God.
Be blessed and know the Lord! Amen.
