1 John 2:7-11New Living Translation (NLT)
A New Commandment
7 Dear friends, I am not writing a new commandment for you; rather it is an old one you have had from the very beginning. This old commandment—to love one another—is the same message you heard before. 8 Yet it is also new. Jesus lived the truth of this commandment, and you also are living it. For the darkness is disappearing, and the true light is already shining.
9 If anyone claims, “I am living in the light,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is still living in darkness. 10 Anyone who loves a fellow believer is living in the light and does not cause others to stumble. 11 But anyone who hates a fellow believer is still living and walking in darkness. Such a person does not know the way to go, having been blinded by the darkness.
Dear Father, I am to love others. I live in your light when I am showing love to others. May I never cause others to stumble. May I strive to live in your light, Lord. May I choose to love other fellow believers. May I have eyes to see and ears to hear your Word and Truth. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
