  1. 1. 1 John 4:7-9 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. www.networkbible.org
  2. 2. 1 John 4:10-12 This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us. www.networkbible.org
  3. 3. 1 John 4:13-16 We know that we live in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent His Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. www.networkbible.org
  4. 4. 1 John 4:17-18 In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like Him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. www.networkbible.org
  5. 5. 1 John 4:19-21 We love because He first loved us. If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, Whom he has not seen. And He has given this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother. www.networkbible.org
  6. 6. If we want to ‘walk the walk’, then we need to understand how God DEFINES love. John blends a confession of Jesus, life of righteousness, and a life of love as CHARACTERISTICS of one born of God. We need to allow God to define love for us; otherwise, we will get TRIPPED up on what it means to ‘love one another.’
  7. 7. Scripture describes what love is by what love DOES, not how love FEELS God loved us in our sin by PROVIDING the means for forgiveness, not by AGREEING with our lifestyle choices. God wants to REPRODUCE His love in and through you.
  8. 8. Our new birth is not the result of our ABILITY to love, but the ABILITY to love the result of our new birth. Love is not a FEELING that I hold as much as a CHOICE that I make… Part of the way that we love GOD is by loving one ANOTHER.
