Context: John warns us of false spirits. Although scholars disagree on what exactly John meant by spirits, John’s larger theme of discerning the truth does not hinge on the definition. We are not to believe anyone, anything, or any spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord. We must be alway vigilant! We are to love each other as God loves us. Think about how many times He has forgiven you, for each and every sin. How often do you hold a grudge after a person wrongs you once? We also show our love for God through our obedience towards Him. By loving Him, we also must love His Son, Jesus Christ, through whom we are granted eternal life.
