And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.” 1 John 4:16b-17
- Live In Love.
“‘(Jesus) You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40
Greek: Eros: sexual passion
Storge: family devotion
- Apply the Jesus Test.
“This is how we know if they have the Spirit of God: If a person claiming to be a prophet acknowledges that Jesus Christ came in a real body, that person has the Spirit of God.” 1 John 4:2
- Son of God and Savior of the World
“All who declare that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God.” 1 John 4:15
“Furthermore, we have seen with our own eyes and now testify that the Father sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.” 1 John 4:14
- Love others the way God loves me.
“Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” 1 John 4:7-8
“God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.” 1 John 4:9-11
