In this passage today John talks about keeping commands. Like the word “love”, the word “command” in the Bible needs to be carefully understood because if it is misunderstood it can, like misunderstanding the word love, lead to a deep misunderstanding as to what the Apostle John is teaching. So, what does John mean when he writes:
1 John 5:3-4
This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world.
