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.”
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.
Do you struggle with bearing witness to your faith in Jesus Christ? Are you afraid you won’t know what to say, or that someone might ask a question you don’t have the answer too? If your answer is yes, I would say you are in line with the majority of those who follow the King. Most followers struggle with their witness in one way or another.
In this short video, Brother Bruxy Cavey helps us out. In his own witty way he takes off a lot of the pressure we put on ourselves where witnessing is concerned. I’m sure you will be glad you took the time to watch it.
Is God good? If so, then why is there evil and suffering in the world? Have you heard this before? If you’re like me, you’ve wrestled with it yourself.
So begins David Flowers excellent post titled Is God Good? It’s an issue that Christians in every age have had to address. It’s a question that has been pondered through the ages by sages, philosophers, theologians, housewives, businessmen, preachers, et all. It is one of those questions that is well worth some serious thought.
Brother David does a splendid job of helping us find the answer, especially in light of the evil in our world today. The short video at the end of his article is a real gem you won’t want to miss.
Do yourself a favor, go to David’s blog and read the whole article. It provides some great insight for those seeking to live in the Reign.
One of the definitions of chaos is a state of utter confusion. Doesn’t that sound like our modern world? There is chaos everywhere we turn. There is chaos in marriages and families. There is chaos in our sexuality. There is chaos in communities, cities, and economies. There is chaos in nations. There is even chaos in churches! Where does all this chaos come from?
