1John 3:23 - William Styles

1 John 3:23. “This is His commandment, That we (i.e., the sons of God, verse 1,) should believe on the name of His Son, Jesus Christ.” This forms the text of a celebrated Sermon, in defense of Duty-Faith, by C.H. Spurgeon, Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, vol. 9, No. 531. Read, however, in its connection it enforces the duty—not of all men to believe spiritually—but of God’s children, among whom the Apostle includes himself, to confide in the covenant character, fullness and grace of His beloved Son (see pages 83, 193, 203).
