Knowing & Obeying

"If you know these things–happy are you if you do them." John 13:17

A great many people know plenty of Scripture truth–but do not live it out. Yet the real test of knowing Scripture–is obedience. We really know only so much truth–as we get into our experience and conduct. The only part of the Bible we have really learned–is what we have learned to live. It is a beautiful thing when a person has been well-taught; it is still more beautiful when he abides in the things which he has been taught, living out the lessons in daily life.

-J.R. Miller
