Knowing Jesus

Watch & wait - Jesus promised to return
Watch & wait – Jesus promised to return

To know Jesus, His commandments we must keep
Perfecting God’s love in us by not being asleep
But by study of His word and vigilance of prayer
Watching and waiting without a care
For when we abide in Jesus, He abides deep within
Teaching us to walk His way and to turn away from sin
So that when He does return, we will not be ashamed
For by surrender to His will we shall remain born again
Filled with His Holy Spirit and perfected in His love
Ready for His return with angelic hosts from above
With majestic glory from heaven he will descend
Triumphantly revealing that He is the beginning and the end
While sinners watch in fear and trembling, all true saints will cry aloud
“Hallelujah! Praise To our King!” as every heart and knee is bowed

(1John 2:4-6; 28-29 ESV): 4 Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, 5 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: 6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked….28 And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming. 29 If you know that he is righteous, you may be sure that everyone who practices righteousness has been born of him.
