Proverbs of a 38 yr old man
Because we know Him. Because we know Him we can live a life that pleases Him. God’s great power has given us everything that we need. He has given to us very great and precious promises. And through these promises, we can receive God’s nature. In that way we can escape from the effects of evil desires that are in the world. Otherwise, they will ruin you. Yes, because we know Him we are being transformed from death to life. We know Him who is life eternal. God’s truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription: “The LORD knows those who are his,” and “All who belong to the LORD must turn away from evil.” Knowledge makes us proud of ourselves, while love makes us helpful to others. In fact, people who think they know so much don't know anything at all. But God has no doubts about who loves him. If anyone has awe-filled reverence, obedience and gratitude for Him. They are greatly loved and known by Christ.
