Weekly Devotionals 2006
Week Eight
By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says 'I have come to know Him,' and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 1 John 2:3-4
The heart of any good story is the believability of the theme. We all enjoy good writing and I must say that the Bible is the most lived out, believable, divine, and hope filled Book of all time.
John, inspired by the Holy Spirit writes an amazing manuscript here. The theme is evident. Jesus is God's Son and our Savior. Confession, belief, walking in Him and Joy are all part of the theme of the Book.
The heart of his message begins in these verses: "By this we know that we have come to know Him, "if" we keep His commandments."
The Gospel of John documents the life of Jesus from a personal perspective. It's entire message is one of "love". The letters of 1st, 2nd and 3rd John are the application process of the true follower of Jesus Christ. Thus to follow we begin with Evidence #1.
Keeping His Commandments
The rich young ruler thought that he kept the commandments but his riches were an idol (1st commandment). Paul says we are to be a "living sacrifice" (Romans 12:1-2). Satan and his world is out to get us. We need Spiritual armour to flee sin in every form. (Ephesians 6) Our Advocate is always ready to do battle. 
Our hearts need to be heart smart and ready. If we are walking in Biblical truth and purity, confessed up and armoured then His Light will shine and victory will be seen evident in our lives.
Questions to ponder:
How have you kept your armour polished in study and equipping through the Word?
What has taken you off the "altar of sacrifice" this week? (Romans 12:1-2)
The desire of our hearts is to have Victory over those things that harm our relationship with the Lord. I pray that we each may have His strength to battle the big and little things that rob us of His joy.
Keep steady in the Walk dear ones,
Until next week,
Sandra Davis for the team
