The Command to Love

Whoever does not do what is right is not of God, especially the one who does not love his brother.

1 John 3:14-17 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

14 We know that we have passed from death to life because we love our brothers. The one who does not love remains in death. 15 Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.

Love in Action

16 This is how we have come to know love: He laid down His life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers. 17 If anyone has this world’s goods and sees his brother in need but closes his eyes to his need—how can God’s love reside in him?

1 John 4:20-21 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Keeping God’s Commands

20 If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For the person who does not love his brother he has seen cannot love the God he has not seen.[a] 21 And we have this command from Him: The one who loves God must also love his brother.
