Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 1 John 3:16 KJV
Loving and caring for one another in obedience to the Word is a true test of salvation.
We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 1 John 3:14 KJV
This is also what is found in 1 John 5:2
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 1 John 5:2 KJV
When we obey the Bible, the Word of God, it shows how much we love one another. We love each other enough to be epistles they can read. They see the beauty of a life in covenant with God in Christ and are drawn to Him because of what they see in us.
We are blessed to be a blessing.
