How Do We Know If People Really Love God?
The world tells us that all religion leads to God. We know that is false, as the Lord Jesus says in John 14:6 that He is the only way to God. Many people say that they know God, but their actions tend to indicate something else. Many have been tricked or deceived by someone saying they know Jesus, but in the end cheat like the enemy and forces of hell.
How Do We Know If Someone Truly Knows God?
Jesus makes it very clear how to know Him. He says
He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.
– John 14:24 (NKJV)
In other words, those who keep His words, the Bible, know Him. If you want to know God, you have to know the Bible. The better you know the Word of God, the better you know that God of the Word.
Those who profess to be Christians but do not do the things in the Word, the Bible, do not know God, or worse yet, they are liars sent to deceive believers. Again, people who don’t follow God’s Word do not know God. The Bible says, love your neighbor as yourself in Matthew 22:39. This is second to loving God. If you love God, you will love your neighbor because God loves them.
Just because someone is religious does not mean they know God. Many religious people are around us but they do not know God.
The only way to know God is to obey His Word, the Bible. If you don’t know the Bible, you don’t really know God. You can change that! Make that choice today.
