Do you know God?
Scripture for the day
1 John 5:18-21 (GW) We know that those who have been born from God don’t go on sinning. Rather, the Son of God protects them, and the evil one can’t harm them. 19 We know that we are from God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
20 We know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we know the real God. We are in the one who is real, his Son Jesus Christ. This Jesus Christ is the real God and eternal life.
21 Dear children, guard yourselves from false gods.
Thought for the day
(excerpts from “Understanding God’s Word – Thru His Word”)
Understanding is acting in obedience to the guidance of the Holy Spirit in accord or agreement with God’s word. Compare this to showing your faith by your works or for example, having knowledge of a car—you know they exist—but you do not know how to drive. Understanding is putting spiritual knowledge into obedient action; it is proof that we know God.
James 1:19-21 (ISV) You must understand this, my dear brothers. Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. 20 For human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 21 Therefore, rid yourselves of everything impure and every expression of wickedness, and with a gentle spirit welcome the word planted in you that can save your souls.
