Tonight, I will have the privilege of preaching at DFBC during the Wednesday night Prayer Service. We will be continuing our study in I John, focusing tonight on I John 3:11-18. Here is the text for you to meditate on today:
“For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. We should not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother’s righteous. Do not be surprised, brothers, that the world hates you. We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. Whoever does not love abides in death. Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. 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? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”
These are stark and plain words – Christians know the love of Christ in their lives and they exhibit it to one another. Bottom line. We will be talking about love tonight.
Looking forward to seeing each of you!
