THE FIRST EPISTLE OF JOHN

CHAPTER 3
 

CHILDREN OF GOD BIBLE VERSES

          Weíre back again, and itís good to have you here for more Daily Bread. In this part of Johnís letter, he talks more about sin, and what sounds pretty scary and confusing at first, turns out to be valuable information for us in our journey of Faith to walk in the light, and fight against the darkness of sin.

CHILDREN OF GOD BIBLE VERSES STUDY ON CHILDREN OF GOD BIBLE VERSES MEANING WITH CHILDREN OF GOD BIBLE VERSES MESSAGE

Matthew 5:9
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Romans 8:16-17
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Galatians 3:26
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

1 John 5:2
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

 

          John writes:

          Consider the kind of love the Father has blessed us with, that we should be called the sons of God. Therefore, the world doesnít understand us, because it didnít understand Him (Jesus, the Son of God). Beloved, right now, we are the sons of God, and it isnít clear yet what we are to be, but we know that when Jesus shall appear, we shall be like Him, because we will see Him as He is. And every man who has this hope in Him, purifies himself, even as Jesus is pure.

Matthew 5:8
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Did you get that part about us becoming like Jesus when He appears?  Iím gonna ask you to hold on to your emotions cuz you ain't read nothing yet ...

          Whoever commits sin, also violates the law, because sin is the violation of the law. And you understand that Jesus was born, made flesh, revealed to us, to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin at all. Whoever abides (remains) in Him, doesnít sin, and whoever sins, has not seen Him, or known Him.

          Little children, let no man deceive you: he that does righteousness is righteous, even as Jesus is righteous. He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever is born of God does not commit sin; because His child abides in Him, and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

CHILDREN OF GOD BIBLE VERSES WARNING OF CHILDREN OF GOD BIBLE VERSES CONCERNS AND CHILDREN OF GOD BIBLE VERSES CONSEQUENCES

          Now wait just a minute here, you may be saying to yourself. Just a couple of chapters ago, John said that if you say you have no sin, youíve deceived yourself, you donít have TRUTH in you. You also make God a liar and His word isnít in you. Now heís saying that if you sin, youíre a devil child. Those are some pretty extreme extremes!

          John isnít trying to contradict himself and confuse us all, heís just stating the facts actually. Letís look at these things separately. Itís true, that we all sin. To say that we donít, well, is to deny that youíre human. Yes, even when youíre reborn you sin. In fact, after youíre reborn, you may think you sin more than you used to, but thatís just because your new self is aware of all the sins that it wasnít conscious of before. (The devil loves making sin seem so normal.)

          Now, letís look at the other side of the coin that John is showing us. He that commits sin is of the devil. Well, it certainly isnít of your own preference, that you sin. Something plants the seed that grows into sin. You donít purpose in your heart, saying, I want to sin, even though you are aware that what you're going to do is a sin. In fact, you probably hate yourself once you do it. And if youíre leading a Christian life, each and every day, the devil is slapping opportunities to sin under your nose left and right. Itís his job. And sometimes we transgress. We all do. We sin.

CHILDREN OF GOD BIBLE VERSES TRUTH AND CHILDREN OF GOD BIBLE VERSES BLESSING

          But the child of God ... that reborn part of you, isnít the culprit of that. That godly child is the one that agrees with John, and that child remains with his Father, and his Father with him. So when John says, He that commits sin is of the devil, he is saying that the source of sin is the devil. And we can all agree. You probably look back on some of your sins and shake your head in disbelief that you could ever imagine doing such things. Itís shameful and ugly and embarrassing and you wish you owned a magic eraser big enough to make even the slightest hint of it disappear. Do you think youíre the source of those deeds? Certainly not. Yet you did them. And thatís why Jesus died for you. And it will happen again. And He will forgive you, again. Two important things to remember. God goes after the source of sin, not the repentant sinner. And secondly, donít ever find yourself using ďthe devil made me do itĒ as an excuse for your sin. Be strong when the devil entices you. You have to become more clever - more crafty, than he. Jesus said:

Matthew 10:16
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Thatís fighting the good fight, and walking the walk.

          Letís continue now with Johnís letter. This is how you can tell who are the children of God and the children of the devil: Whoever isnít righteous, is not of God, neither is he who doesnít love his brother. This is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not like Cain, who was of that wicked one, and killed his brother. And why did he kill him? Because his own works were evil, and his brotherís were righteous.

          Donít be surprised my brethren, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who doesnít love his brother remains in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. (A murderer in the sense that he kills love and his own hope of eternal life.)

          By this we understand the love of God, because Jesus laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has plenty, and sees his brother in need, and doesnít have compassion on him, how can the love of God live in him?

          My little children, letís not love in word (things written), or in talk, but in deed and in TRUTH. And by this we know that we are of the TRUTH, and shall encourage our hearts before Him. Because if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our hearts donít condemn us, then we have confidence toward God. And whatever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.

          And this is His commandment, That we should believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He commanded us. And he that keeps His commandments dwells in him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit which He has given us.

Ephesians 5:1
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

          Well, weíve gotten a good lesson from John about sin, but thatís not all heís saying. Love is more than just words, itís in your actions. Itís in your generosity, and your compassion. The qualities that Christís love included should be the kind that characterizes us, and when it is, we will be free to experience confidence before God. Just the thought of that makes you take a deep breath and feel good inside, doesnít it? You really canít learn enough about love, and John will teach us more about the love of God in the next chapter, right here at Daily Bread.
