Abide in Me

John 15 9 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. If you keep the Lords commandments you will abide in His love. So [...]

Be in God, Not of this World

1 John 5: 18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. If we keep ourselves in God, the wicked one does not touch us. 1 John 5:19 We know that we are of [...]

We have our petitions

1 John 5:14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. I question whether most people believe that He [...]

Meat of the Word

This is deep stuff! 1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness on earth:[b] the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one. Witness in heaven-The [...]

Another Plea to Love your Brother!

1 John 4:20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can[c] he love God whom he has not seen? 21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his [...]

No Fear in Love

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. There is no fear in love. We do not fear because we are in Christ. I understand this is a tall order, but that does negate that it [...]

With our confession

With our confession we abide in Christ, and He in us. 1 John 4:15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. If we confess Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in us, [...]

Can you hear me now?

1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of [...]
