1john 2:7-9 the original command is love your God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. U should see a new way of looking at it after Christ came.
1john 3:11-17 tolerate and speak kind words to your enemy. Love those around us even unto death. Christ is our example.
9) anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is in darkness.
The enemy gets us trapped in unforgiveness and hatred. He gets us trapped in this moment in time.
If you are my child you do NOT have that right!!! You can NOT walk in unforgiveness if I have forgiven you.
3:16-19 this then is HOW know we belong to the truth
Jeremiah 17:9 the heart is deceitful above ALL things beyond cure. Your heart is a liar and directs you to the lust of the flesh. There is a war going on.
The heart will condemn you unto death and you run from the presence of God and the Holy Spirit convicts you to draw you near to Him.
There is a difference in u stumbling in an area and in u making a lifestyle of it. Either way the way out of sin is repentance.
1 john 3:21- 24 have full confidence in HIM - what i am doing will line up with HIS WILL.
