Knowing that God exists does not necessarily mean that we are favoured by God or that we will be definitely meet Him one day when we leave this earth.
Knowing in our mind that God exists is not enough to earn His approval. Even demons know who God is and acknowledge His existence. Mental assent to the fact that God exists is not to be equated to submission and allegiance to God.
The demoniac who lived among the tombs, on seeing Jesus from afar, ran and worshipped Him. He cried out with a loud voice, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me” (Mark 5:7). Even the physical act of bowing down to God does not necessarily reflect true submission.
