“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 John 2:3-6




We know that we have come to know Jesus

if we keep His commands.

Whoever says, ‘I know Him,’ but does not do what He commands is a liar,

and the truth is not in that person.


But if anyone obeys His word,

love for God is truly made complete in them.

This is how we know we are in Him:

whoever claims to live in Him must live as Jesus did.


– 1 John 2:3-6 (NIV)






Knowing God is not a merely intellectual exercise

– the immensity of God can not be grasped by man’s limited understanding.


Knowing the Lord refers to something much simpler and more important:

it means being united to Him by faith and love – by grace.


True knowledge of the Lord consists in,

doing what He commands,

obeying His word,

and, above all, Christians must identify their life with Christ’s

and live as He did.






"Walk as He walked:

does that not mean giving up the comforts He gave up,

not being afraid of the kind of trials He bore,

teaching what He taught […],

persevering in helping even those who show no appreciation,

praying for one’s enemies,

being kind to evildoers,

serenely tolerating the proud?"


– St. Prosper






Lord, help me be more like You.

Increase in me while I decrease, and let me serve You with all my heart and with all my soul.
