November 24, 2019 The Love of God (1 John 4:15-19)
showed His love to the world
by sending His Beloved Son (Jn 3:16).
we receive God’s true love
we will have confidence on the day of judgement (Jn 3:18).
Though Cain killed his brother Abel, he did not overcome him.
Rather, he feared others would kill him (Gen 4:4).
If a person does evil in the world, he thinks he is blessed.
But his spirit will fear on the day of judgement (Heb 10:30-31).
By God loving us,
He took up the fear in our spirits (1 Jn 4:18).
we receive God’s love,
God removes our fears (Jn 15:9-12).
Those who receive God’s love
will love his brother and sister.
This is the witness God lives in us (1 Jn 3:14-15).
Those who fear will not love.
Those who fear will be surely judged.
○ Those without concern for their neighbors’ spirits are murderers.
The people of Nineveh will condemn them.
○ Those who love have no fear,
for God’s love dwells in them.
Those who love their brother’s spirit overcome fear.
○ Test your spirit to see if it has fear.
Those without love will condemn others.
They will show their own fear like Cain.
※ Let’s love. Let’s save other souls. Let’s overcome fear.
Those who love have no fear. They are blessed.
God’s love is in them in fullness.
