John the Apostle issued a clear warning to the early church against those who professed Christ yet maintained sinful, self-centered lifestyles. Alistair Begg explains that in contrast, genuine faith is marked by love for God’s commandments and love for others. As Christians, our obedience should not feel like drudgery. Instead, our moral character should reflect our joyful belonging to Christ.
3And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments.
