Real Love, Real Truth Wk. 2
1 John 2:28 - 3:18
In these passages from the 1st epistle of John, we are reminded that as children of God we should reflect and imitate His character.
We are God's children. He is righteous. We have been made righteous through the blood of Jesus Christ, not our own doing. We must understand who we are in the family of God through Jesus. When we are aware of this identity, we are motivated to act accordingly, in love, to those around us.
As children of God, loved by Him, we are love. Verse 3:18 reminds us to love in action and truth rather that in word only.
Let's be a body of believers that SHOW love to others, through self-sacrifice, as a living reflection of God: humans made righteous by the ultimate sacrifice of love.
