"If anyone imagines that he knows something, he
does not yet know as he ought to know. But if anyone
loves God, he is known by God." - 1 Corinthians 8:2-3
How are you known? Are you known as someone
who can be trusted? Are you known as someone who
is loved? Are you known simply due to your job? Are
you known as a family man, a workaholic, a
shopaholic, or maybe as one who is a "good person"?
Many of these things are good identifiers but each
one lacks the only true identity that matters. Are you
known by God?
This morning as we study together from the book of
2nd Corinthians, I implore you to debate that
question in your mind... And if you cannot answer
that question with a resounding yes, then study with
us this morning how you can go from having an
identity that is based on foolishness to having an
identity that is overflowing with grace, mercy,
forgiveness, and love.
"And we have seen and testify that the Father has
sent His Son to be the Savior of the world. So we
have come to know and to believe the love that God
has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love
abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love
perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for
the day of judgment... There is no fear in love, but
perfect love drives out fear." - 1 John 4:14, 16-18
