1 John 2:20-25
Good To Go
All of you know the truth.
I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it.
OK so I'm good then? I know the truth; I'm not in the dark; I'm good to go. And not just me, all of us know the truth. We must be one enlighten group here - lucky us.
Yes, lucky us indeed. And woe to us too as now we must live this truth and that's not so easy. When I Know with my mind, how do I Know in my heart then Know with my life? That I don't know. Comprehension, belief, action. Perhaps John writes to us from ages past precisely because it he knows that is hard: hard back then, hard now. We need help and encouragement and direction and a whole lot of divine intervention to live this Truth. And lucky us truly as we do have all of these things indeed. We have God's word, saints before us and among us, each other in community, and always the Sacred Spirit. I guess I really am good to go.
