Remaining ignorant about something means you don’t have to worry about it, feel responsible for it, or get upset by it.
That may be true in some instances, but not when it comes to knowing the truth about God’s word. In fact, being ignorant about your new-creation life that you have in Christ can be very costly.
This is the main reason so many believers are living defeated lives. One of the most important questions any believer in Christ should ask themselves is this: What is it that I don’t know that I don’t know?
The author contends that if we say that we believe right but we are behaving wrong, we are living in deception. When we start believing right, especially when it comes to who we are in Christ, we will start behaving right.
He also emphasizes that we don’t do good things to become who we will be in Christ. We do the right things because of who we already are in Christ.
