He that knoweth God heareth us

We are of God. He that knoweth God heareth us.
(1 John 4:6)
John gives us several ways by which we may prove that we are of God:
matters of both faith and practice. How can we know if others are of
God? The answer is simple: those that know God are willing to hear us.
They hear us with understanding, acknowledgement, and faith. It is not
as though we are the standard. Rather, God’s truth is the standard. But,
if we are of God, it is certain we will tell the truth of God. Since we
tell the truth of God, all others who are of God will rejoice in the
gospel we preach. We do not need to examine the lives of others, nor
delve deeply into their theology. We need only plainly proclaim what God
has taught us. If he has taught them also (and all God’s people are
taught of God) they will agree. If God has not taught them, they will
not agree.
