Watch “Apr 6, 2021 – Verse of the Day – 1 John 3:16 – We also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” on YouTube

The Outworking of Love
16 By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17 But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?

18 My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. 19 And by this we [d]know that we are of the truth, and shall [e]assure our hearts before Him. 20 For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.

(This means when you are walking in love, be careful not to allow the devil to condemn us in our hearts because The Lord knows your heart and will to do the right thing.

If you are sure that you are doing the right thing and your heart isn’t condemning you, then stand strong knowing you are waking in love according to the Lord, confident that He will reward you for it.)

21 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. 22 And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. 23 And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave [f]us commandment.
