The more pure and holy any doctrine is, the more likely to be of God; nor can we by any other rules try the spirits whether they are of God or not. Earlier in the letter, John brought up the idea of the world and its threat to the Christian life (1 John 2:15-17). -------------------- Johannine Writings No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

Instead, we know the holiness of God is loving, and the righteousness of God is loving, and the justice of God is loving. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. i. i. When Jesus washed the feet of the disciples, and showed such great love and servanthood to them, we might have expected Him to conclude by gesturing to His own feet and asking who among them was going to do to Him what He had just done for them. Plainly, Christians can say, “We know.” We don’t have to merely “hope” we are saved, and “hope” we will make it to heaven, thus having no assurance of salvation before we pass from this world to the next. It transforms our life to know the love of God in this way. The devil doesn’t care at all if you know Jesus or love Jesus or pray to Jesus – as long as it is a false Jesus, a make-believe Jesus, a Jesus who is not there, and who therefore cannot save.

And this commandment we have from Him: We have a commandment to love. If we do not love one another, how can we say that we have received the love of God and have been born of Him? c. We love Him because He first loved us: This verse tells us where our love for Jesus comes from. When we say God is love, we are not saying everything about God. ii. i. Today a person might confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh yet deny that He is God as the Bible teaches He is God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. The fear John writes of here is not the appropriate reverence we should all have of God, but the kind of fear which involves torment – that agonizing kind of fear which robs our soul of all joy and confidence before God. If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? We love him from the influence of his own love; from his love shed abroad in our hearts our love to him proceeds. We easily think how this shows the love of Jesus, but John wants us to understand it also shows the love of God the Father: He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. ii. Does love exist between God and sinners? 2. And in John 15:7, He said, If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you. They face none of the rejection the child of God will face from the world (1 John 3:1), because they are friends with the world. Minor Prophets The New Testament We are of God. ii. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica. (1-6) Brotherly love enforced. The false teachers spake of the world according to its maxims and tastes, so as not to offend carnal men. None of our words or thoughts can do justice to the free, astonishing love of a holy God towards sinners, who could not profit or harm him, whom he might justly crush in a moment, and whose deserving of his vengeance was shown in the method by which they were saved, though he could by his almighty Word have created other worlds, with more perfect beings, if he had seen fit.
