The Kitchen Table 1 John 5 Day 21
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments 1 John 5:2
This is about us, the believers. “By this we know…” If we don’t know that we know, how will anyone else, including the devil, know that we know Jesus? We must know in our hearts, in our conscience, that we know God if we want to walk in victory. Only we know who and what we believe. If we love Him, we will love what He loves. We will love His word, His wants, and His will. Love, His love, will touch us and teach us what love is. There will be a love for the brothers and sisters who also love God. It is this love that overcomes the world. If we know that He loves us and that we love Him, then His love will cause us to love who and what He loves. Only we can know who and what we love and until we get honest with ourselves, we won’t be honest with anyone else. Remember, Love wins.
