What We Can Know In 2020
 
Introduction
Bible Christianity is the only religion with absolutes, “know so” principles. The majority of religions teach, “maybe,” “I hope so,” “if you live a moral life, you might have a hope.” It’s a Bible believing Christianity that teaches, “you can know.”
 
We Can Know Christ. 2 Timothy 1:12
Paul the apostle declared, “…for I know whom I have believed…” He stood firm to all that would listen that he absolutely knew his relationship with Jesus Christ. In John 4:42, we discover what the men of Samaria believed after listening to the woman who met Christ at the well.“…and said unto the woman, now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.”
 
We Can Know His Call. John 10:27
“…he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them…” John 10:27, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” Those in the local New Testament church that have placed their faith in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ know His call because they hear His voice. If you are in a church that teaches that the Word of God is the final authority for the practice of true Christianity, you be thankful! Why? Because that means you know who Christ is, and you follow his voice, which is the Word of God. You will never be deceived by cultists and false preachers.
 
We Can Know Our Course. 1 John 1:7
If God knows our name and calls us, then that would mean He has a course for us to follow. Genesis 5:24, “…Enoch walked with God…” A walk always speaks of a direction and a plan. The Lord Jesus is very concerned with His people and the direction they are traveling. He wants us to walk worthy of our calling. God has given clear instructions on our course. Romans 13:13, “…let us walk honestly…” I Corinthians 7:17, “…as the Lord has called… so let him walk…” Deuteronomy 2:7, “…he knoweth thy walking…”  Galatians 5:16-25, “…walk in the spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” 
 
We Can Know Our Sins Consequences. Amos 5:12
“For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins…” Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death.” The Christian must be aware of deceiving or denying his sin. Christianity is a religion of sinners saved by grace, but we must never use the doctrine of grace as a license to live in sin. Why? Sin always comes with a price. If you were to ask me to describe the Christian life, I would say it is a life of love, forgiveness, and thankfulness. But then I would say it is a life of confession, repentance, and humiliation. Why? Because sin is a burden to everybody.
 
We Can Know of His Coming. Acts 1:11
“…why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner…” John 14:3, “…I will come again…” Never have so many things lined up to reveal the coming of Jesus Christ for His own as you can see today. Jesus is coming, but are you ready?
 
Conclusion
Dear reader, if you have discovered that you do not know your relationship with Christ, you do not know that you are saved and your sins are forgiven, then come to Christ today. Pray with me right now and receive Christ.
