Love One Another

1 John 3:11-12

For this is the message you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 12 We must not be like Cain who was from the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother’s righteous.


13-15

Do not be astonished, brothers and sisters,a that the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life because we love one another. Whoever does not love abides in death.


15-17

All who hate a brother or sister are murderers, and you know that murderers do not have eternal life abiding in them. We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us—and we ought to lay down our lives for one another. How does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses help?

18

Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.
