住在主裡的印證—遵守主的道 Evidence of Abiding in God—Obeying His Word
Evidence of Abiding in God—Obeying His Word
講師/Speaker: Lawrance Wu
1 John 2: 3~6 約翰壹書二3～6
3 我們若遵守他的誡命，就曉得是認識他。 4 人若說「我認識他」，卻不遵守他的誡命，便是說謊話的，真理也不在他心裏了。 5 凡遵守主道的，愛神的心在他裏面實在是完全的，從此我們知道我們是在主裏面。 6 人若說他住在主裏面，就該自己照主所行的去行。
3And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. 4Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, 5but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: 6whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.

What does it mean to “know God” (v.4)?
Why does a relationship with God transform practical behavior?
What is the meaning of “Love” (v.5)
Knowing Jesus means we will obey His commands.
You would have assurance of abiding in Christ if you obey His commands.
Anyone who says he abides in Christ ought to walk in the same way in which He walked.
Obedience to God does not bring about justification (which comes by faith alone), but obedience as a pattern of life does give evidence that one has been born again. To know him involves a personal relationship that transforms practical behavior.
