The Implication of God’s Love, A Closer Look At 1 John 3:1-10
Spread the love

What is the implication of God’s Love toward us? 

In our last session, we talked about how John was warning his primary readers and us about the last hour and its characteristics. The appearance of many mini – antichrists is the evidence that we are really nearing the end times. John also gives us in that chapter new ways to identify those who are opposed to the Lord. He also reassures those who belong to the Lord that they don’t need to be worried about defectors and false christs since the Holy Spirit himself will guide them into all Truth. John also mentions that denying Christ is synonymous to denying His Father. So no one who denies Jesus knows God.

Today we’re going to look at 1 John 3:1-10 in which John is going to focus on God’s love for us and its implication. See video below

The Implication of God’s Love

 Passage: 1 John 3:1-10

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears[a] we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s[b] seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God. 10 By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.
