This week Pastor Ron takes us to I John 4: 7-8 as we study the test of love.
I John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
A. Perfected Love Manifests the Essence of God (V7-8)
1. The Command to Love (V7a)
2. The Theological Basis (V7b, 8b)
a. God is the Source of Love (7b)
b. God is the Essence of Love (V8b)
3. The Manifested Conclusions (V7c, 8a)
a. Everyone who loves…(V7c)
b. The one who does not love…(V8a)
We see in this message a new depth to the subject of love. This kind of love only comes from God and can’t be known by he unbeliever.
