Whoever says, “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar.
1 John 2:4
If you walk in the light and embrace Christ as your advocate and atonement, you fall under His authority. “You were bought with a price. So glorify God” (1 Corinthians 6:20). John’s litmus test of genuine Christian faith is not a common perception or perspective. Asking Jesus in your heart or getting baptized does not guarantee belief. True knowledge of God is personal and practical. “If you love me, keep my commands” (John 14:15). If Jesus is your authority, you will abide in Him and walk as He walked. Do you hold firmly to the commands of following Jesus?
Pray to keep his commandments.
