Question: What exactly does John mean when he says the word "commandment?" Cf. John 13:34 The "newness" of the commandment comes from the idea of loving just as Jesus loved, in other words, laying down your life for another person. Implications of Laying Down Your Life: being selfless, looking to their interests, caring for their needs. Question: What does it mean to truly "love your brother?" Main Theme: The main idea of this passage seems to be loving your brother. Loving your brother seems to point out your conversion and regenerated heart. (2:10-11) Insight: the way to "love people better" is not to try harder, but to understand and know more about who Jesus is, and what he has done for you. Quote from Matthew Henry on v.8: "We should see that that grace which was true in Christ be true also in us.The more our darkness is past, and gospel light shines unto us, the deeper our subjection to the commandments of our Lord, whether considered as old or new. Another trial of our Christian light; before, it was to be arrpoved by obedience to God; here, by Christian love." Flow of Thought: Main Idea: Love Your Brother, Obeying God Explanation 1: Loving Your Brother Proves Walking in the Light Explanation 2: Hating Your Brother Shows You Walk in the Darkness

1 John 2:7-11
NT
esv
Beloved, I am writing you no new commandment,
but an old commandment that you had from the beginning.
negativepositive
The old commandment is the word that you have heard.
ideaexplanation
At the same time, it is a new commandment that I am writing to you,
which is true in him and in you,
because the darkness is passing away
and the true light is already shining.
series
ground
Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.
Whoever loves his brother abides in the light,
and in him there is no cause for stumbling.
But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness
and walks in the darkness,
and does not know where he is going,
inference
because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
