People's Bible Notes for 1 John 4:15


1Joh 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God. Confession of Jesus Christ in word and life is declared proof of the indwelling Spirit in 1Jo 4:2. God dwelleth in him, and he in God. Here it is proof of God dwelling in us, which means the same thing.

    There is some truth to the old adage, "Familiarity breeds contempt". I find it much easier to love most people in short bursts, from a distance, or while they're quiet or sleeping. Considering that love is provoked, I suggest we work on being more lovable. I also find prayer and meditation to help.
