We’ve been looking at 1 John 2:6, and seeing that we must live as Jesus did. Here’s a devotional poem from Christ-follower Anita Jude seeing the same. It’s called “O, To See My Name!”

We were in darkness;
we made a choice —
to dwell in His light
after hearing His voice.

Now, “love your neighbor,
stretch out your hand,
love even enemies,”
is our Lord’s command.

Sometimes it’s hard, Lord,
with you there in heaven,
but we know there’s a helpline,
open 24/7.

We abide in you, Lord,
and pray faithfulness remain —
and when you open your book,
O, to see my name!
