"We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. 4 The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.5 But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did." 1 John 2:3-6
I am not good at remembering names. I never forget a face, but names are sometimes a challenge. Repetition is the key to my memory banks. When I see a face over and over it is burned into my memory, but unless I hear or say your name over and over I can sometimes forget what it is.
I know the Name of Jesus and I see His face in the faces of His children, but unless I listen to His Word over and over again I can easily forget what He wants of me. When my wife makes me a list of things to do, I must refer to it frequently or I will forget something on the list. That is the same reason I must go again and again to the Word to find out what is on His list for my life. Repetition is the key to discipleship. Obey Him over and over and even in the smallest things. Then you can truly come to say “I know Jesus!”
