Discussion for 1 John 3

    In verses 1 John was urging Christians to think about the nature and magnitude of God’s love for them, to consider how God loves them. Comprehending Jehovah’s love in those terms will surely deepen our love for him and strengthen our relationship with him.

    Verse 18: True Love is burden bearing( John 3:16, Galatians 6:2) and it is never convenient most times. If you wait until it is convenient for you before attending to the plights of all men( believers and heathens) you may miss out on the call of Love and/or God.
