“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 John 2:5




Whoever obeys what Christ says

is the kind of person in whom God’s love is perfected.

That’s how we know we are in Christ.


– 1 John 2:5 (GW)






"That’s how we know"

– keeping the commandments

is a sign of true knowledge of God.


Knowing God, or knowing Jesus,

is not a merely intellectual exercise

nor does it mean that the immensity of God

can be grasped by man’s limited understanding.

It is something much simpler and more important:

knowing God means being united to Him

by faith and love…by grace.


It isn’t enough for us to say that we love God

and that we know Him

– we must keep His commandments,

keep His word,

walk in the same way in which He walked…


As we identify our life with Christ’s,

we become in Christ.






"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, I want to be with You, I want to be like You, I want to be one with You!
