Some say, “We can’t know anything.” Others seem to think they know everything. The truth is somewhere in the middle, for we can know the truth (John 8:32; 1 John 2:21), but we will not understand many things until we get to heaven (1 John 3:1–2).

Consider fifteen “knows” in 1 John.

We can know the following:

  1. “We know Him” (1 John 2:3–4).
  2. “We are in Him” (1 John 2:5).
  3. Who is born of God (1 John 2:29).
  4. We will be like Him (1 John 3:1–3).
  5. “He was manifested to take away our sins” (1 John 3:5).
  6. We have “passed from death to life” (1 John 3:14).
  7. “We are of the truth” (1 John 3:19).
  8. “He abides in us” (1 John 3:24).
  9. The Spirit of God abides (1 John 4:2, 3, 6).
  10. “Everyone that loves knows God” (1 John 4:7–8).
  11. “We abide in him” (1 John 4:13).
  12. “We love the children of God” (1 John 5:2–3).
  13. We have eternal life (1 John 5:11–13).
  14. He hears us (1 John 5:14–15).
  15. The whole world lies in wickedness (1 John 5:19). —Dan Winkler
