Shalom I wish you a day full of joy and love. See all men with the eyes of Jesus and follow his footsteps for your life!
1 John 2, 5
But whoso keepeth his word, in God’s love is truly made complete. By this we know that we are in him.
In love you are perfect! How little Johannes here a new “legality” means, showing its big and bold sentence he opposes a untrue Gnosis “. But whoever keeps his word, in him verily the love has become totally to God” instead of “bid” is here chosen the term “word”, which is more comprehensive. In “Word”, one person talks off. In “word” Jesus, we have encouragement, promise and commandment in all its inner connection, but so that the freshly accorded highlighting the “commandment” is not streaked. However, as in Jesus’ life “protested and was given to us, so behind the sets of” Keep the Commandments “the love of God.
Keep the love of God and you automatically Safeguard the commandments, for the love of God does not cancel bids, it is completely free from sin. Only through him you can achieve perfection, never out of you.
The will of the Lord who commands us is one with his love will be the “telos”, his “ultimate goal”, has with us, bringing us to this ultimate goal. The “Keep the word” can only be done so that we hear it as the word of love and pick up and leave about by exercise of the commandment of love all our thinking, speaking and acting. Who loves so where is the love of God to their final destination, it is “completed” in him. The passive “it is finished” shows how much John is actually acting size in the love of God.
Not we “accomplish” something “! But that must remain not only in weak beginners. God’s love can “really” reach their “telos” “in truth”.
Pray for the perfect love in your life and heart, pray that is completed in you the love of God.
God’s protection, blessings and peace
