Knowing God (1 John 1:3-4)

Meditations on Genuine Change

Purpose: Reflections and meditations form the conclusion to this first section on Knowing God from 1 John 1:3-4.


Worship must wade beyond admiration into personal devotion. A beautiful sunset stuns us with its glory and yet God is drawing us further along. As He reveals his ways, He is at the same time displaying His beauty and glory so that our hearts be drawn to adore Him.


Observing moral laws does protect and benefit societies, families and individuals. But there is much more significance of the moral law implanted in us. There is that inward inclination and reminder of obligation to carry out such Laws.

God has established them within us so that we might pay close attention to such things and respond to Him by loving Him with all our hearts, might and being. Obedience, like a temperature gauge, enables us to know how enthralled we are with knowing Him.


Our lives are centered around God – His person, desires and purpose. We are careful to listen as He faithfully coaches us in what is good and lovely. Absent is the picture of a general, coldly pushing his soldiers about as pebbles on the ground. God values not only what we do, but how we do those things with Him so that we can delight in His ways with us.


It is totally inadequate if we only deal with the more metaphysical questions on whether one can know God and never reach the place where you can say, “I know God!” and that one’s inherited curse of death is completely dealt with by belief in Christ on the cross.
