3. What is the assurance that God has given believers?

Go Deeper

1. Jesus gave 2 great commands which are parallel to the 2 commands in this passage. What were the commands that Jesus gave? (Matt. 22:36-40)

2. God has given commands, but our lives are not about a list of do’s and don’ts. So from the 1 John 3 verses and from the Matthew passage above, what does God want from us as His children?

Discussion/Application Questions

1. John puts 2 commands together: believe on Jesus and love one another. Believing in Jesus is necessary for salvation. Does this mean that loving other people is also necessary for salvation?

2. So how do these 2 commands work together?

3. What are some “proofs” of salvation in these verses?
