IV.
Why don’t we revisit these words from 1 John today,

1 John 3:14-19

We know that we have passed from death to life because we love one another. Whoever does not love abides in death. All who hate a brother or sister are murderers, and you know that murderers do not have eternal life abiding in them. We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us—and we ought to lay down our lives for one another. How does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses help?

Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action. And by this we will know that we are from the truth and will reassure our hearts before him

V.
What can it be like to live in the life, the world, John describes for us?

Can you see life the way John describes it?

When are you in touch with this kind of life?
