Do You Know Jesus?

1 John 2:3-6 says 'Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.' This is the test of knowing Jesus. Ask yourself this one question, do I keep His commandments? We just read where the Word says that anyone that says "I know Him," but does not keep His commandments is a liar. Pretty straight forward. Do we keep his commandments on love? Do we truly love each other as Christ loved us (John 13:34-35)? Do we live our lives in such a way that God is glorified, or are we looked upon as being just a little higher standard morally? Is there a difference in the way we live and the way the world lives? You see, the Word of God will change us from the inside. The Word of God is truth, and we need the Word to help us live out our lives in such a way that Jesus Christ is honored and praised. If your friends, or the people you work with cannot tell that you are a Christian, then you need to take a good close look at your life and ask the Holy Spirit to show you any area that has not been released unto Jesus. John 14:21-24 (TPT) says 'Those who truly love me are those who obey my commands. Whoever passionately loves me will be passionately loved by my Father. And I will passionately love him in return and will reveal myself to him. Then one of the disciples named Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, "Lord, why is it you will only reveal your identity to us and not to everyone?" Jesus replied, "Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place. But those who don't love me will not obey my words. The Father did not send me to speak my own revelation, but the words of the Father." So, the question is; do you know Jesus?
