Lesson 6: Knowing We Know Him (1 John 2:3-6)

What does it mean to actually know God in a personal way and to have any assurance that such a “knowing” is real? The Apostle John was committed to helping the church sort through such a question and providing an answer that is every bit as applicable to believers today. Pastor Daniel supplies John’s answer in his own words by stating, “My obedience or disobedience to Christ reveals the genuineness of my salvation.” Fleshing that out through a closer look at the text, he sets forward some criteria that help one evaluate whether or not his salvation is genuine or false. He first puts forward the point that, “Persistent refusal to obey Christ reveals that I am a liar.” But then conversely, he emphasizes, “Persistent desire to obey Christ reveals that I am a Christian.”
