As John reminded the early church of its message and ministry, he highlighted the importance of loving others. Genuine Christian love, he wrote, cannot be lived out in isolation or by ignoring our commitment to care for one another. In this message, Alistair Begg reminds Christians that loving others well is evidence of our new birth. As believers abiding in Christ, we will impact our culture with greater effectiveness as we put aside selfish desires and grow in sacrificial love.
11For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
