True love for Jesus is demonstrated by obedience. John is clear about this, and as we’re praying through 1 John, we must deal with this reality head-on. This prayer seeks to know God but also accepts His commandments and Lordship. Pray this prayer with me. Trust God for the enablement to live obediently.

 

PRAYER

Father, let me live like Jesus did – keeping every commandment. I long to know You deeply, personally, and passionately. I also desire to demonstrate the evidence that I know You, and that evidence is obedience. By Your grace, I will demonstrate obedience. Complete and perfect is my love for You. Give me a burning love that produces a passionate surrender to Your Lordship. I pray this in the name of Jesus, the surrendered One.

 

1 JOHN 2:3-6, NIV

We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. Whoever says, “I know Him,” but does not do what He commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys His word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in Him: Whoever claims to live in Him must live as Jesus did.
