The study on the epistles of 1, 2, 3 John was a reminder that we are to love one another and this love is not one that is expressed in words alone, but more importantly, one that is expressed in action.
“Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”
1 John 3:18
“And He has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.”
1 John 4:21
