A Closer Look At 1 John 5:1-5, Are You A Child Of God
Spread the love

Are you a child of God? In today’s presentation, we will be looking at 1 John 5:1-5. We’ve already talked about the fact that it’s a manifest contradiction to claim to love God , yet hate one’s brother. And we explained in detail what the contradiction was. A child of God cannot hate another child of God because they are both indwelled with the Holy Spirit. We also discovered that at the root of the hatred is an antipathy towards the righteousness of God. So the person who hates his brother in Christ really is completely opposed to the righteousness of God. Today we’ll build on what we’ve already learned and talk about the nature and traits of true children of God.

Are You A Child Of  GOD?


Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
