What We Can Know
Today’s readings are Jeremiah 33 – 34, Psalm 74 and I John 5. We are reading from the New Living Translation.
What do you know? John wants to make sure you and I know a few things before he signs off on his letter. His parting words to us have this refrain, “We know”. He wants us to know that we know that we know.
Know that you have fellowship with the Father, through the Son.
Know that you are not to make a practice of sin.
Know that God has come to set you free.
And amidst all these things, he leaves us with this comment:
Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts. (I Jn 5:21 NLT)
John is telling us: Stay away from idols, child. And then you’ll be sure to know all that you need to know.
Know what you need to know. Live as a child of God, because that is what you are.
