In this message we will examine five reasons why we should be motivated to love and obey our Lord. First, because God bestowed His wonderful love upon us (1 John 3:1); second, Christ’s promised return (1 John 3:2-3); third, Christ’s atoning work for us (1 John 3:4-8); fourth, the gift of a new nature (1 John 3:9-18) and finally, the witness of the Holy Spirit within (1 John 3:19-24).
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God . . . – 1 John 3:1
