God’s Commandment-Believe on Christ and Love One Another

This is my first sermon on Sunday, March 30th.  The text is I John 3:23, which tells us that God’s commandment is that we believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another.  Though they seem to be two different actions, John speaks of them as only one, showing the absolute inseparability of faith and love.  Where one has faith in Christ, he will also love the brethren.  The person who truly loves the people of God has believed on Jesus Christ for everlasting life.  He who lacks one or both is in darkness even until now.
