Many things look very similar, yet there are distinctions that set them apart. John has been laying our for us the things that separate the child of God, and the child of the devil.

1 John 3:10-24 – Loving Like Children Of God

John continues to reveal what a child of God looks like. Not only is it a life characterized by righteousness, but in our text here, the focus is on love for one another.
