Do I "Know"?

"We don't 'know' anything unless it changes the way we live." Bob Johnston

 Knowing means to understand which should lead to action! I "know" I am supposed to pray regularly and read God's Word but if I don't do it nothing changes. If I really "know" God's love and the sacrifice of Christ's death, then shouldn't that change my life in some way. Shouldn't the WAY I live change?

James  2:17 says, "In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action is dead."

I don't live my faith because I HAVE to. I live it because I want to. My relationship with God, as I walk close with Him causes me to desire Him more and to love the way He loves. As I "know" Him, my life is changed. I hope that this is evidence that would convict me of being a follower of Christ.

Continuing to give thanks:
