“DO WE REALLY LOVE GOD?” PART 2

Read 1 John 4:17-21.

If we really love God it proves:

I. THAT WE ARE BORN OF GOD AND KNOW GOD VERSE 7.

            Notice tree things:

  1. God is love – His very nature is love.

Therefore, if a person loves God he becomes a loving person – he takes on the very nature of God.

  1. People see and know that we are born of God.
  2. They see it by our love for God and one another.

Matthew 22:39, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

John 13:35, “By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”

John 15:12, “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.”

Romans 12:9, “[Let] love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.”

1 Thessalonians 3:12, “And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all [men], even as we [do] toward  you:”

 1 Peter 1:22, “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, [see that ye] love one another with a pure heart fervently:”

B. IT PROVES THAT WE SEE GOD’S LOVE VERSES 9-10.

  1. God’s love is seen in One Supreme Act – He sent His Son.
  2. It is God’s way of saving man from sin and hell.
  3. It proves than in verse 11 we ought to love one another.

WE WILL LOOK AT FIVE OTHERS TOMORROW!
