Marks of a True Believer

How's Your Love Life?

by John MacArthur

Introduction

A commercial some years ago asked this important question: How's your love life? Apparently enough people are concerned about their love life to make advertizers on Madison Avenue think it's a good way to promote their product. I can't help but think that John is asking the same question in this text. He uses it to monitor the legitimacy of those who claim to be Christians because true Christians love one another. One of the key tests of Christianity is love.

According to 1 John 2 the believer will love God and others, but will not love the world. In 1 John 3 Christians are referred to as the children of God. Two things mark the child of God: righteousness and love. Righteousness is the theme of the first ten verses (see pp. xx- xx); love is the theme of verses 11-24. Verse 10 acts as the transition.
