1 John 4:7-10
1. We should love one another because God is love (vv 7-8)
a. God is the source of genuine love, because it comes from His very nature.
b. God’s true children display His nature.
2. God showed His love by sending His Son as the propitiation for our sins (vv 9-10)
a. God’s love is seen in us in that He sent His son so that we might live through Him (v 9).
b. Love is truly seen, not in our loving God, but in His loving us by sending His Son to be the propitiation for our sins (v 10).
