    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:16

    En esto hemos conocido la caridad de Dios , en que l puso su vida por nosotros; tambin nosotros debemos poner nuestras vidas por los Hermanos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 John 3:16

    Verse 16. Hereby perceive we the
    love of God] This sixteenth verse of this third chapter of John's first epistle is, in the main, an exact counterpart of the sixteenth verse of the third chapter of St. John's gospel: God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son, &c. Here the apostle says, We perceive, egnwkamen, we have known, the love of God, because he laid down his life for us. Of God is not in the text, but it is preserved in one MS., and in two or three of the versions; but though this does not establish its authenticity, yet tou qeou, of God, is necessarily understood, or tou cristou, of Christ, as Erpen's Arabic has it; or autou eiv hmav, his love to us, as is found in the Syriac. A higher proof than this of his love Christ could not have possibly given to the children of men.

    We ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.] We should risk our life to save the lives of others; and we should be ready to lay down our lives to redeem their souls when this may appear to be a means of leading them to God.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16-21 - Here is the condescension, the miracle, the mystery of Divine love that God would redeem the church with his own blood. Surely we shoul love those whom God has loved, and so loved. The Holy Spirit, grieve at selfishness, will leave the selfish heart without comfort, and ful of darkness and terror. By what can it be known that a man has a tru sense of the love of Christ for perishing sinners, or that the love of God has been planted in his heart by the Holy Spirit, if the love of the world and its good overcomes the feelings of compassion to perishing brother? Every instance of this selfishness must weaken the evidences of a man's conversion; when habitual and allowed, it mus decide against him. If conscience condemn us in known sin, or the neglect of known duty, God does so too. Let conscience therefore be well-informed, be heard, and diligently attended to.
