Love & Truth (1 John 4:1-6 Devotional)

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 and every spirit… Continue reading Love & Truth (1 John 4:1-6 Devotional)

16 By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. 17 But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? 18 Little children,… Continue reading By This We Know Love (1 John 3:16-18 Devotional)

The Reason to Love (1 John 3:11-15 Devotional)

11 For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 12 We should not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother.

How do God’s Children Remain Pure? Part 2 (1 John 3:7-10 Devotional)

7 Little children, let no one deceive you.

Live Up the Life of Children of God (1 John 3:1-3 Devotional)

1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.

Love the World Or Love God? (1 John 2: 15-17 Devotional)

15 Do not love the world or the things in the world.
