1 John 2:3–4 (NKJV)
3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

We profess we know God, yet we do not do what He commands. Jesus said, in John 14:15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments.” How much we love Christ is seen in our thoughts, words, and action.

John makes it very plain. If we have accepted Christ into our lives we will, not must, but will keep the commandments of God.

Ask yourself how much you love God. Are you keeping the law, the Ten Commandments of God found in the Scripture. Do you know the Words of Christ? Are you following Christ?

John 8:12 “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life.” To walk in the darkness is to walk in the way of Satan. Anything we say, do or think that is not of God is of Satan. There is no in between. There is no neutral ground. Either we are for Christ, or we are against Him. If we are against Christ, we are aligning ourselves with Satan. Jesus is very clear without any ambivalence, we either stand with and for Christ or we stand with Satan. Sorry for the redundancy.

We are to “Walk the Talk.”

is a phrase that comes from 1 John 2:6 KJV, which states that an individual who professes to know Christ should walk as Christ walked. This means that we should not just profess Christianity with our lips but also with our lives.

Faithful Christians walk the talk, practicing what they preach. The Bible calls us to become more and more like Christ in our character and walk the talk of our faith.
