Knowing God

We are assured that we know Christ,
Knowing why He was sacrificed;
Then it is natural each day,
Enabled to trust and obey.

Whoever says that they know Him,
Has a view that is very dim;
If he just never understands,
With how to follow His commands.

For his tongue is really on fire,
And virtually a liar;
Because the truth is not within,
Since he is corrupted with sin.

But whoever obeys the Word,
Does understand what he has heard;
About the Lord and all the love,
That is flowing from up above.

Whoever is within the light,
Is truly blessed with the insight;
For to love honor and obey,
Never urging to go astray.

Then the truth exists within you,
Same as Christ as perfect and true;
And your faith nothing can defeat,
Staying spiritually sweet.

Those who love Christ live in the light,
And love believers in their sight;
But if you hate where you embark,
You are still living in the dark.
