Today’s text is the third time in this epistle when John described love as the supreme test of the Christian life (1 John 2:7-11; 3:11-18). In 1 John 4 he emphasized the sacrificial love shown by God’s revelation in Christ. John also outlined ways we can be assured God lives in us and that we abide in God (vv. 13-21). Trust in the World’s Savior 1 John 4:13-16 All Christians are given the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5).
