“Beloved, I am writing you no new commandment, but an old commandment that you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word that you have heard. 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.”
- These verses are emphasizing the old commandment of loving each other. The commandment came alive when Jesus demonstrated his love for us by dying on the cross! This is the light that will continue to shine for those who are living in Him! For the visible, darkness is defined as the absence of light. Where the heart is concerned, darkness will always abide without the presence of Jesus!
