Why is it important to think carefully about the different ways the Bible speaks of God’s love? Do you believe that we can distinguish a true Christian in the way he/she demonstrates love toward others? Jesus gave us a command to love one another because this is the true test if we are indeed true disciples of Jesus (John 13:34-35). Today, let us learn how John the beloved encourages us to demonstrate our true love for the Lord by accepting Him, living for Him and by loving people in our lives.

1 John 4:7-21

Take Away Notes


  1. Loving others confirms that we are born of God and that we know Him. (vv. 7-8)

  2. Loving others verifies that we received God’s love. (vv. 9-11)

  3. Loving others proves that God’s Spirit is alive in us. (vv. 12-13)

  4. Loving others demonstrates that our testimony and confession are true. (vv. 14-18)

  5. Loving one another attests that we love God. (vv. 19-21)

Life Applications


  1. Show your love for the Lord by loving the people He entrusted to you.

  2. Love the Lord by reading and applying His Word in your life.
