An Encounter with Truth

God we thank you so much that you have allowed us to see yet another new day. Lord God thank you for providing our needs and for taking care of not just us but our family members and loved ones. In the name of Jesus Lord God, continuously help us to see the error of our own ways , and help us to be willing to change those things, repent of those things that are not pleasing in your sight. Thank You for Your Divine help Lord God for we cannot do these things all by ourselves.

The test of knowing Jesus Christ is outline in 1st John chapter 2 starting at verse 3. It tells us “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 out himself also to walk just as he walked.” Brothers and sisters what this scripture is saying in plain language is anyone who claims to be a Christian, a Christ follower, yet disobeys biblical principles , is a liar. Overall John is saying that once you have an experience with the Christ you will have a change of heart and a change of mind. However anyone who continuously live the old sinful life on purpose have not really truly met Jesus. They have never had a true encounter with the Christ nor with Holy Spirit. Overall this scripture is revealing the fact that the truth of the word of God must be the controlling  influence  to a person who truly knows Jesus Christ.
