Taste and See Challenge Day 29 1 John 3:11-24

1 John 3:11-24


The Message was love from the beginning
  • We should love another 

  • We shouldn’t be like Cain 

  • Cain belonged to the evil one and did what was evil and he killed his brother because he was doing what was righteous 


Cain didn't love Abel. He wanted what Abel had. A right relationship with God with the wrong methods and motives. God wants all of us. Not some half-unacceptable offering and expecting God’s blessings on half-doings.


If you want a relationship with someone who you admire in the faith you have to go and seek God for yourself. 

The World Hates You

V 13 

  • Don’t be surprised if the world hates you 

Love is the proof
  • If we love brothers/sisters who believe it proves we have passed from death to life 

  • A person with no love is dead 

  • Anyone who ates another bro/sis is a murderer at heart 

  • Murderer don't have eternal life within them 

Real Love Gives
  • Jesus gave up his life for us 

  • We should give up our lives for our bro/sisters 

  • If someone lives well and sees a bro/sis in need but shows no compassion how is God’s love in that person 

Love in Action
  • Don’t just say it 

  • Show your truth through your actions 

  • Our actions show we belong to the truth 

  • These actions give us the confidence to stand before God

  • God is greater than our feelings and our guilt. He knows everything 

  • If we don't feel guilty, we can come to God with bold confidence and we will receive what we ask according to his will 

  • Because of our obedience and doing what pleases him 


The Commandment
  • We must believe in the name of the Son, Jesus Christ 

  • Love one another 

  • Those who obey his commandments remain in fellowship with him and he with them

  • We know he lives in us bc of his Spirt
