Read: 1 John 2:3-6

1 John 2:3-6

3We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. 4Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 5But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 6Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.


People often joke that they wish life came with an instruction manual. But it does—all of life’s important lessons are spelled out for us in the Gospel! Your greatest example of how to live your life is Jesus, who lived the perfect life in order to be the perfect sacrifice and secure your eternity with God. Jesus’ ministry was about obeying God’s will all the way to the cross, but to know God’s will you must know the Scripture, in which every word is God-breathed and, therefore, important. Is there a part of the Bible you have never read? Read it! Take time this week to explore (or re-explore) God’s Word.
