    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:23

    ¶ Y ste es su mandamiento: Que creamos en el nombre de su Hijo Jess, el Cristo, y nos amemos unos a otros como nos lo ha mandado.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 John 3:23

    Verse 23. That we should believe on the name of his Son] We are commanded to believe on
    Christ, that for the sake of his passion and death we may be justified from all things from which we could not be justified by the law of Moses; and being through him redeemed from the guilt of sin, restored to the Divine favour, and made partakers of the Holy Ghost, we are enabled to love one another as he gave us commandment; for without a renewal of the heart, love to God and man is impossible, and this renewal comes by Christ Jesus.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. And this is his
    commandment , &c.] Having mentioned the keeping of the commandments of God, the apostle proceeds to show what they are; that they are faith in Christ, and love to one another; which two are reduced to one, because they are inseparable; where the one is, the other is; faith works by love. That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ ; Christ is the object of faith, and he is no, as he is Jesus, a Saviour; faith deals with him as such, and will have no other Saviour but he: and now to believe in him, is not merely to believe that he is the Son of God, the true Messiah, the Saviour of the world, that he is come in the flesh, has suffered, and died, and rose again from the dead, is ascended into heaven, and is set down at the right hand of God, makes intercession for his people, and will come again to judge the quick and dead; but it is to go forth in special and spiritual acts upon him, such as looking at him, coming to him, venturing on him, trusting in him for life and salvation, committing all into his hands, and expecting all from him. And this is called a commandment, and comes under the notion of one; not that it is properly a law, or belongs to the law; for faith in Christ Jesus is a fruit of electing grace, and a blessing of the covenant of grace; it is the free gift of God, and the operation of his Spirit, and is peculiar to the elect of God, and sheep of Christ; and so cannot belong to the law of works; but, as the Hebrew words, hrwt , and hwxm , both signify any doctrine, and instruction in general; (see Psalm 19:7,8); so the word here used designs an evangelical doctrine, a divine instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the Gospel, which declares that he that believes in Christ shall be saved; and so the word is used for a doctrine in this epistle, ( 1 John 2:7); and that of the next command or doctrine, which follows, and love one another as he gave us commandment ; that is, as Christ taught and instructed his disciples, ( John 13:34 15:17). Ver. 24. And he that keepeth his commandments , &c.] Attends to those instructions and declarations concerning faith in Christ, and love to the brethren, and acts according to them: dwelleth in him, and he in them ; that is, he dwells in Christ, and Christ dwells in him; the same is said of believing in Christ under the figurative expressions of eating his flesh, and drinking his blood, (see Gill on John 6:56); and hereby we know that he abideth in us ; or dwelleth in us, as before, by the Spirit which he hath given us ; which if understood of private Christians, as the preceding verses incline to, the sense is, that union to Christ, and the continuance of it, or his indwelling as a fruit of union, and the permanency of that, are evidenced by the Spirit of God; who is given in consequence of union and relation to Christ, as a spirit of regeneration and sanctification, of faith and love, of adoption, and as the earnest of the heavenly inheritance; but if of the apostles and ministers of the word, it may regard the gifts of the Holy Spirit bestowed on them, fitting them for their work and office, and who is a spirit of truth, and not of error; and by having and enjoying these, they knew that Christ abode in them, and had reason to believe, according to his promise, that he would be with them, and with his ministering: servants in succession, to the end of the world; and this sense seems to be encouraged by the former part of the following chapter.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 22-24 - When
    believers had confidence towards God, through the Spirit of adoption, and by faith in the great High Priest, they might ask what they would of their reconciled Father. They would receive it, if goo for them. And as good-will to men was proclaimed from heaven, s good-will to men, particularly to the brethren, must be in the heart of those who go to God and heaven. He who thus follows Christ, dwell in Him as his ark, refuge, and rest, and in the Father through him This union between Christ and the souls of believers, is by the Spiri he has given them. A man may believe that God is gracious before he knows it; yet when faith has laid hold on the promises, it sets reaso to work. This Spirit of God works a change; in all true Christians i changes from the power of Satan to the power of God. Consider believer, how it changes thy heart. Dost not thou long for peace with God? Wouldst thou not forego all the world for it? No profit, pleasure or preferment shall hinder thee from following Christ. This salvatio is built upon Divine testimony, even the Spirit of God __________________________________________________________________
