I John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
You can’t just say you know God. Knowing God will cause you to walk as He walked. Knowing Him affects you. Many may say that they are His, believers, saved, etc. but they are not telling the truth. We know we are His when we walk in truth. We that are in Christ love His Word. We want the truth. We want to live in truth. We want to act out the truth. Being a true believer means that we will walk as He walked. Knowing and living thinking of Him affects every area of our lives.
