LOVE EXPRESSED THROUGH DISCIPLE The confiding love and unselfish devotion manifested in the life and character of John present lessons of untold valueto the Christian church. John did not naturally possess the loveliness of character that his later experience revealed. By nature he had serious defects. He was not only proud, self-assertive, and ambitious for honor, but impetuous, and resentful under injury. He and his brother were called "sons of thunder." Evil temper, the desire for revenge, the spirit of criticism, were all in the beloved disciple. But beneath all this the divine Teacher discerned the ardent, sincere, loving heart. Jesus rebuked this self-seeking, disappointed his ambitions, tested his faith. But He revealed to him that for which his soul longed--the beauty of holiness, the transforming power of love. ( E.G.W. The acts of the Apostles, page 540 )
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love (1 John 4:8) My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Righteous One (1 John 2:1) Those who claim to be in the light but hate a fellow believer are still in the darkness. Those who love their fellow believers live in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble (1 John 2:9-10) Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is (1 John 3:2) For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another (1 John 3:11) The transformation of character that Jesus made in John can be found in his three epistles
