Devotionary is a new podcast that is designed to make the Bible accessible and applicable to everyday life. It combines the inspiration of a daily devotional and the insights of a commentary, but in language that is easy-to-understand. We will be working our way through the entire Bible offering a chapter-by-chapter overview of each book. The goal is to give you a solid understanding of the Bible’s overarching and unified message of redemption. We hope you enjoy.

As should be fairly obvious by now, these nine verses are jam-packed and that’s why we are doing our fifth episode on 1 John chapter two, verses 3-11. This one is called, “Something Old. Something New” and will take a look at John’s new take on an old commandment. As has been the case in the last four episodes, the subject matter is love, but this time, John will link our love of God with our love of others. And who did he get that idea from? Jesus Himself. Jesus was the one who described the love of God and others as the two greatest commandments. And John simply drives home the point that you can’t truly love God if you refuse to love your brother or sister in Christ. One of the things we tend to forget is that our love for others is actually an expression of our love for God. When we love those whom He has made, we are loving Him. His love for us is meant to flow through us, not come to a screeching halt on us. His love is intended to be shared. And while Jesus Christ was the ultimate expression of the love of God, as Christ-followers, we are to manifest that love to others on a daily basis.
