    For us to come out of darkness into His light

    To come out of darkness into His light
  • Tim George on 1 John 2:15
    Love not the world means the cosmos which is the evil system of this world.
  • Martha on 1 John 2
    Quintin read Ephesians 5 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it
  • Martha on 1 John 2
    Quinton...here is a scripture for you. Ephesians 5 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it
  • Quintin on 1 John 2:15
    Can we love our wives? I know we must love our wives but I suppose should never put even our wives above the Lord.
  • David on 1 John 2
    The Ten Commandments were given to show us what sin is. Thousands died when the Law was first given. Jesus showed us Grace. Thousands were saved when Grace was given. Look to Jesus, not the Ten Commandments. Israel thought they could keep the law but they were wrong.
  • Evangelist Grant on 1 John 2:15
    Love not the world (in which we live) neither the things that are in the world ( money, houses, clothes, cars, jewelry, any device made good or evil or the pleasures of this world. If (is a condition) any man love the world the love of the Father is not in him. We cannot love God and mammon there must be a choice made either or. Strait is the gate and narrow is the way and few there be that find it. Will you find your way to the Father, Son Jesus , and the Holy Spirit?
    We cannot focus if our minds ,hearts, and souls, are not seeking him. We are or become void meaning empty inside.
  • Tina on 1 John 2:2
    Praise God...
  • Timothy Wayne George on 1 John 2:28
    The Apostle John is telling us to abide in Jesus Christ, so that when He appears, we will have confidence, and not be ashamed at His coming. We must provoke one another to love, and good works as we see the day of Christ appearing. For many will turn away their ears from hearing the truth, and will be turned unto fables. So do not be tossed to and fro by every wind, and wave of doctrine. Jesus is the only way to the Father, and who ever denies that Jesus is the Son of God, is of the antichrist. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes to the Father, except by Him.
  • BSP on 1 John 2:17
    This world is going to pass away so it is very important not to love the world or the things in the world. We need to make sure of what the will of God truly is and make sure that we are doing that will. This is a matter of whether we pass away with the world or we live forever.
  • Clement on 1 John 2
    Most of us are still confused and make thoughtless statements that the Commandments has been nailed to the cross and hence we do not need to keep them, this is apostasy.The Ten Commandments still exist beacuse it is the character of GOD and the Law is Immutable.
  • Cosmus Mutua,E.Africa-Kenya. on 1 John 2:13
    The special attention n recognition given to the whole church composition:the old,young n children, calls upon each christian to live responsibly right ie according to the TRUE knowledge of Christ that we all are expected to have.
  • Bruce thompson on 1 John 2
    Very good reading
  • AKINYEDE BABATUNDE on 1 John 2:17
    what this verse is telling us is that,this world,the people living in it, all the activities going on in it will surely come to an end one day,the bible made us to realize that relationship or oneness with world is Gods enimity,those that love this world and the worldly activities going on in it then forsake God will perish with the world,because God has determine to consume it with fire, after the arrival of jesus the 2nd time, and they will remain in hell with the devil forever, but those who seperated themselves to do the will of God to follow his commandments right here on earth will reign with him(God) forever, the bible made us to realize that when these has happened that the world has p***ed away, there will come a new earth nd a new heaven where those who did the will of God will abide forever and live forever.
  • Nina Bullard on 1 John 2:15
    I think it means to keep our hearts and minds fixed on Christ Jesus. The times I've sinned or gotten involved have been when I did not daily go the Lord and study His Word. The closer I stay too Him, the better my life flows. N.B.
  • Renee on 1 John 2:15
    In Every thing that we Do It should Be filled with Jesus ... God says Do not be conformed to this World but be Transformed by the Renewing of your mind. Things that we watch and Do effect Us the things that we Spend more time with If its not God then that is our God! Yes that includes Facebook Phones video Games .... We need to make more Time For God Learning about Him Spending time with him (Reading His word, Talking to him) We are not to love the things of this World. you can not Be Hot Or Cold your one or the Other...Seek First the Kingdom Of God!
  • Servant on 1 John 2
    so we must keep the commandments because according to the books of john in 2:3-4
    3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

    4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
  • Linda on 1 John 2:5
    A man word lets you know what kind of person he is if he's always saying and not doing, then he's not a reliable person. Keeping your word should be a priority even in todays time where its all seems to be headed down the drain!
  • Thokozani Msowoya on 1 John 2:4
    We must obey what God commands us to do, John 14:15.
  • King on 1 John 2:9
    He that saith he is in the light and hateth his brother is in darkness. The fact is that when you say you are doing what is right, you have to love your brother, the one whom you are close to. If you do not, that means you’re still doing what is not right.
  • Bishop George kole on 1 John 2
    1 John 2:1 that you may not sin: God's plan for every believer. The cure for backsliding is to hurry to our Advocate Jesus Christ. Because He is righteous, He will plead our case and obtain our forgiveness. 1 John 2:12-14, The commandment to love fits all ages and all stages of the Christian life. Children in Christ can love because their sins are forgiven. Fathers have longer memories of past grace. Young men rejoice in power to overcome evil.
  • Olayinka oye on 1 John 2
    I John 2:8: Again a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in Him and in you: because the darkness is past and the true light now shineth. 2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things like anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication, envy, hatred, etc; are passed away; behold all things are become new. The light of God in us empowers us to have our loins girt about with truth, and having our breastplate of righteousness, Our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, taking the shield of faith, wherewith we shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And taking the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:10.
  • Fred on 1 John 2:15
    I'm GUESSING that it means anything that takes time away from GOD, e.g., facebook, smart phones, video games, etc… devices that distract you from spreading the word.
  • Timothy Wayne George on 1 John 2
    1 John 2:1 Tells us that if any man sins, we have an Advocate with the Father. Jesus is our propitiation for our sins, and not only ours, but the whole world’s. In order to have the Advocate on your team, you must accept Him in your heart as your Savior. That is why the scripture tells us God is not willing that any would perish, but that all would come unto repentance. The proof that one is born again, is that he/she will not practice sin. The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. So a child of God cannot practice sin. Whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and this is what keeps the child of God on the straight and narrow way.
  • Sammy Dusenburg on 1 John 2:19
    The problem with your defense of the unbiblical doctrine of eternal security is that you forget that just because you're born, that doesn't mean you'll live forever. Ever read Hebrews 10, "He that despised Moses law” died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under feet the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. "Yes, the Lord will judge HIS PEOPLE--not just those who aren't his people. Check out verse 38 of that same chapter, and don't forget to look over at chapter 6, verses 4-8, before you talk about having to be born again a second or third time. Jesus himself, in Matthew 10:22 gets, as always, the last word, by which we (his people) will be judged: "He that endureth to the end shall be saved." Sounds suspiciously like "the one who shall not be saved, is he that does not endure to the end," doesn't it?
  • Dan on 1 John 2
    1 John 5:20 We know that the Son of God is come and has given us an understanding that we might know him that is true ....the true God... 1 John 2:3: And hereby we know that we know him if we keep his commandments. 1 John 3:23: And this is his commandment that we believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ. 1 John 4:15: Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him and he in God. 1 John 2:4: He that saith I know him and keepeth not his commandments is a Liar. 1 John 2:22: Who is a Liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ..THE SON OF GOD...then it says the truth is not in him Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life no man comes onto the father but by me ....This is the hope of glory Christ in you....If Christ be not in you you are none of his... 1 John 1:5: But whosoever keepeth his word in him ..Jesus is his Word ...verily is the love of God perfected. 1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God that we keep his commandments......And hereby know we that we are in him. 1 John3:24: And he that keepeth his commandments God dwelleth in him and he in God. 1 John5:20: We know that the Son of God is come and hath given us and understanding that we might know him that is true ......his commandments ...and we are in him that is true even in his Son Jesus Christ this is the true God and Eternal life.
  • David on 1 John 2
    V. 28. John is stating that the loser believer will be ashamed in a resurrection body at the judgement seat of Christ . We have confidence, because we have capacity righteousness God will not bless us beyond our capacity. Righteousness here is what the mature believer possesses. He has capacity.
  • George on 1 John 2
    Life is in HIS blood - and the Blood of Jesus Christ His Son Clenseth us from alll sin.
  • Yolanda G. Duriso on 1 John 2:2
    What great love our Lord has for us. Lord thank you for having mercy on us.
