Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. – 1 John 2:3
We are expected to keep His commandments. By doing so, we demonstrate that we truly know Him.
That sounds simple enough.
There’s just one problem.
More than that is expected of us.
He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked. – 1 John 2:6
We are expected “to walk just as He walked.” That’s where it gets a little more complicated.
Jesus is literally a hard act to follow. Yet, we can do it.
He promises to never leave us or forsake us. We have His Spirit dwelling within us as believers. He is present so we don’t go at it alone.
Acknowledge His presence in your life. Know that Him being alive within you can allow you to do mighty works. Stay in tune with the urgings of His Spirit alive within you. Refer to the Scriptures morning by morning, then seek out opportunity upon opportunity to live by them daily.
That being said, live up to the expectation of living like Jesus daily.
