The Important Letter of Love

John Collins03/16/2012John writing to the bride in John 2 said that the Truth dwelled within us and would be with us forever.

He wished grace, mercy, and peace unto them, from "God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father", in Truth and love.

It gave him great joy that he found their children walking in the Truth, just as was commanded by the Father.

He implored them not to lose the original commandment, "that we love one another."  In perfect love, we should walk after His commandments, and that we love one another is the commandment that they had heard from the beginning.  They should walk in Love.

He warned them that there were many deceivers that had entered into the world.  They did not teach that Jesus Christ became "a man" to live a perfect life and die for our sins.  He said that this was a deceiver and an antichrist.  

They should review their own lives, so that they did not lose the things which the disciples had taught them, and that they might have a full reward.  Whoever did not walk in Love was not abiding in the doctrine of Christ, did not have God, and transgressed against Him.  He that abided in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.

If there was any one that came to them, and did not bring this doctrine of Love, they should not receive them into their house.  Nor should they bid them that God be with them on their way.  He that did would be a partaker of his evil deeds.

John had so many things that he wanted to write unto them, that it was more than he could write with paper and ink.  The rest, he decided to say when he spoke to them face to face.

Out of all the things that John could have written them, the most important thing he could write was the message of Love.

As Christians, we should ask ourselves:  Have we strayed from the original commandment?  Do we walk in Love?  Do we let deceivers place importance on other things instead of love?  Do we let deceivers teach Jesus was "more than a man", and nullify the One who lived a perfect life to die for our sins?  Do we allow those not teaching Love to continue?  Do we consider it the most important commandment?  Do we have perfect Love?
