  1. I am writing these things so that The Letters of John Life Light First John 3:10-21 Page 1035 in Pew Bibles Love Confidence Born of God That you may know

  2. First John 3:10-21 • This is how God's children—and the Devil's children—are made evident. Whoever does not do what is right is not of God, especially the one who does not love his brother. • For this is the message you have heard from the beginning: we should love one another,

  3. unlike Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil, and his brother's were righteous. • Do not be surprised, brothers, if the world hates you. • We know that we have passed from death to life because we love our brothers. The one who does not love remains in death.

  4. Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him. • This is how we have come to know love: He laid down His life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers. • If anyone has this world's goods and sees his brother in need but shuts off his compassion from him—how can God's love reside in him?

  5. Little children, we must not love in word or speech, but in deed and truth; • that is how we will know we are of the truth, and will convince our hearts in His presence, • because if our hearts condemn us, God is greater than our hearts and knows all things. • Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us we have confidence before God…

  10. C. S. Lewis To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to keep your heart intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully around hobbies and little luxuries… lock it up safe in… your own selfishness… It will not be broken, it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable… the only place outside of heaven where you can be perfectly safe from the dangers of love is hell!” . >

  15. 6. Love is Not a Feeling to Feel, But is a Command to Obey • Vs. 23 “Now this is His command: that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another as He commanded us.” . >
