3 Love Proves our New Likeness to Christ 14 ‑ We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. Whoever does not love abides in death. 15 Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. 1 John 3:14–15 (ESV)

4 What is the infallible test of Christianity?  Is it being an evangelical?  Is it being a fundamentalist?  Is it church attendance and good living?  The criterion is LOVE

5 THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE.  True Love is expressive, definite, active and concerned about the other person.  True love shows true Christianity  Scorn and withering criticism is very destructive

6 Love proves our New likeness to God 16 ‑ 17  Compare John 3:16 with 1 John 3:16  True love is demonstrated  "It is one of the beautiful compensations in life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.”

7 Laying down our life for the Brethren  Christ died for us ‑‑ Paid the penalty for us  Christ literally took our penalty  He willingly took my punishment  We are to literally take the weight and sin of others.

8 Communion  Self Examination  Bread—Body took my beating  Blood—Paid the penalty for my sins

9 Proof of our love ‑‑ give world's good  Not just to the rich who have goods  Meeting the needs of others  Having this world's good  "A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small package.”
