True Knowledge

2 John 5b-6a “I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands”

I’ve recently been watching a TV show called ‘Bones’ – The show centres on an extremely intelligent woman who has an unparalleled knowledge of forensic anthropology. So much so that she will regularly tell others she is the best in the world in her field.

My year 12 youth group boys, can probably tell you which NBA players had the most points, assists, rebounds and even blocked shots in the NBA last season (And are now speculating about where Lebron James will end up playing
next year…)

As we return to the letters of John over the next few weeks, John points us to the truth. This week we are going to be seeing how it is only God who provides us with true knowledge. Without understanding the true knowledge of God we are missing the point. God’s knowledge is so much more important than the so called knowledge the world offers us. I hope the next few weeks are a great reminder for us to keep coming back to the word of God in our lives.
