New Testament: 1 John 2:1-17
Summary: Christ Our Advocate, The New Commandment, Do Not Love the World
He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
~ 1 John 2:2
By this, we know that we have come to know Him if we keep His commandments. The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever follows His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says that he remains in Him ought, himself also, walk just as He walked.
~ 1 John 2:3-6
Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God continues to live forever.
~ 1 John 2:15-17
