Love One Another, Part 3

Text: 1 John 3:11-24

Summary: in 1 John 3:11-24, John sets forth three contrasts between the children of God (i.e. his readers; 2:12-14) and the children of the devil (i.e., those who left, 2:19) to assure his readers of their status as the children of God.

Outline: 

I. The children of God love fellow believers in the church. In contrast, the children of the devil hate fellow believers in the church (vv. 11-13).

II. The children of God have passed from death to life. In contrast, the children of the devil abide in death (vv. 14-15).

III. The children of God are generous toward fellow believers in need (v. 16). In contrast, the children of the devil are tight-fisted toward fellow believers in need (vv. 17-18).
