He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
1 John 3:14
We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loves not his brother abides in death.
Let us know, let us press on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

2 Peter 1:10
Therefore rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, you shall never fall:
Occasion of stumbling

Woe unto the world because of offenses! for it must needs be that offenses come; but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!
Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that temptations to sin will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
Why? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone;
That you may approve things that are excellent; that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ;
But if a man walks in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him.
By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another.
This is my commandment, That you love one another, as I have loved you.
Let brotherly love continue.
