1 John 4:7-8 - Beloved, let us love one another, because he that loves is
from God, and everyone that loves is begotten of God and knows God. He that
does not love, does not know God, for God is love.

Part 3 ~ Expressing Divine Love Is Our Highest Priority

The love of God is not expressed to a selective group of people, but to the
whole world (John 3:16; Titus 3:4; 1 Peter 2:17; 1 John 2:2, 4:10). The
love of God causes the sun to shine upon the evil and the good, and sends
rain for the righteous and the unrighteous (Matthew 5:45; Luke 6:35). From
the wellspring of love comes mercy and forgiveness. God's nature is to
bless those who are offenders and persecutors, and those of us who have
been born of Him are called to do the same (Luke 6:28; Romans 12:14).

All of God's children are marked with the expression of God's divine love
and holy nature. Unfortunately, there is probably not a more neglected
subject among His people. Above all other things, the expression of this
unfailing love must be manifested among us if the world is to know we have
been begotten of Him (John 13:35; 1 John 2:5, 10, 3:11, 4:21). Above all
other things, it is our responsibility to show this love one for another -
among ourselves first, and also to the whole world. If we fail to walk in
love one for another, then we have failed at the most fundamental and
essential attribute of our calling (John 13:34, 15:12, 17; Romans 12:10,
13:8; and Galatians 5:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:9; 1 Peter 1:22; and 1 John
3:11, 23, 4:11-12; 2 John 1:5).

1 John 4:7-8 - Beloved, let us love one another, because he that loves is
from God, and everyone that loves is begotten of God and knows God. He that
does not love, does not know God, for God is love.

Part 2 ~ Dwelling In Love

God's love cannot be manifested through mankind until we have been begotten
of God. When we are born of God, the Holy Spirit fills us with the love of
God, and His love flows as long as we are yielded to Him. If we will dwell
in love, we will dwell in God. If we are willing to know the love of Christ
that passes knowledge, then we will be filled with all the fullness of God
(Ephesians 3:18-19). If we do not love one another as Christ loves the
Church, then we are refusing to walk in the Spirit, and are in breach of
our relationship with God (John 15:12; 1 Thessalonians 4:9; 1 John 4:2,
4:8).

1 John 4:7-8 - Beloved, let us love one another, because he that loves is
from God, and everyone that loves is begotten of God and knows God. He that
does not love, does not know God, for God is love.

Part 1 ~ Evidence Of Knowing God: The Love Of God

The most important expression and evidence of the new birth is the love of
God. This kind of love is perfectly defined by the life of Jesus, Who loved
us so much He laid down His life that we might live. God's love, by
definition, is a holy love; one that is giving and unselfish, and was
revealed to all mankind when God so loved the world He gave His only
begotten Son (John 3). This holy love fulfills all of the law and purpose
of God for man in that it works no wrong-doing (Romans 13:10; 1 Corinthians
13:4-8). This is a protective love that would do everything to rescue a
soul from sin, and do whatever necessary to keep them from sin and its
dreadful fate.

1 John 4:4 - You are from God little children, and have conquered them,
because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.

Part 2 ~ Empowered To Overcome The World

The life and power of Jesus Christ in us enables us to overcome the spirit
of antichrist, the spirit of the world, and the spirit of deception. We may
be confident today that all of the power of iniquity in the world -the lust
of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life- is not more
powerful than Christ Jesus Who lives within us. We are guaranteed by God
Himself that He will arise in us and subdue all of our enemies. He will go
before us and fight all our battles. As we stand yielded to Him, God will
destroy all of the opposing forces coming against us, and we will find we
are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus (Exodus 17:11; Luke 10:19,
Romans 8:37). In believing what He has done for us, we are empowered to be
strong in the strength of the Lord and the power of His might (Ephesians
6:10).

1 John 4:4 - You are from God little children, and have conquered them,
because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.

Part 1 ~ Christ Jesus Dwells In Us

Jesus Christ, the One Who conquered the Devil and all of the power of sin,
lives on the inside of every believer (Luke 10:19; John 12:31; 2 Timothy
1:10; Hebrews 2:14; 1 John 3:8). Jesus Christ, Who is the truth, the way,
and the life, is the greater One that "is in you." Jesus Christ came in the
flesh when He was born into the world, and also when He was born into the
hearts of men by the Holy Spirit. When we were born of the Spirit, and
became a new creation through the miracle of salvation, Christ was formed
in us and came to dwell in us through this miraculous union (John 17:23; 1
Corinthians 2:12; Galatians 1:6; Colossians 1:27; 1 John 3:24). That Christ
Jesus dwells in us is in fact an essential doctrine of the New Covenant
(John 14:20, 15:4, 17:23, 26; also: Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 3:17;
Colossians 1:27).
