This is the final episode on 1 John 2:3-11 and it is entitled, “I Know That I Know.” John wanted his readers to know that they know. In other words, he was anxious that the believers to whom he was writing were confident in their knowledge of God. And the best way to assure them of their relationship with God was to be found in their obedience TO God. Those who have come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior, will live differently, because they have the Spirit of God living within them. They have a new capacity to live in obedience to God because they possess the power of God in the form of His Spirit. It is when we see that we are actually able to obey God that we begin to realize that our relationship with Him is real and our knowledge of Him has moved from head knowledge to actual heart knowledge. Anyone can claim to know God. But it is only those who have actually come into a relationship with Him through faith in His Son who can truly boast of knowing God. And the proof is in their obedience to Him.
