Do you know God?

I mean, do you really know the Lord?

You may respond, “Oh yes, I have known the Lord for many years.”

Really?

Are you sure?

How can a person know if they really know the Lord, or if they simply know about Him?

Fortunately for us the apostle John provides the answer in 1st John 2:3 – 6.

And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.  ESV

So…what do you think?  Do you really know the Lord according to what John writes?  It appears to me that truly knowing God comes only as a result of daily living in the Reign.
