|The Love of God Perfected|
|And by this we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: by this we know that we are in him.||(1 John 2:3-5)|
As we continue to faithfully read, study and obey God's Word, The Bible, we will form a relationship with Our Father along with a personal commitment to Him. To know God means that we place our faith and trust in Him and experience a desire to keep His commandments and do His will. However, if we say we know God, but our actions go against His laws, we are lying: our words and our deeds are in conflict one to another and our disobedience shows a lack of knowledge of The Lord. When we are faced with this situation, our lives must be corrected by sincerely praying to Our Father for His guidance. Then if we align our speech and our acts and adhere to The Bible, we will receive the love of God perfected and our lives will become complete.
