1 John 3:10-24– Love One Another

September 25, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: 1 John

Message: Love One Another

Throughout scripture, we are told to love one another. In 1 John this is a recurring theme. This is rather challenging at times– especially in the broken world in which we live. We are constantly bombarded with images that evoke great emotion and can lead to anger rather than love. How do we handle this? John will teach us about how we are to love one another.

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

The title of this week’s sermon bring us back to a common theme throughout the letter of 1 John– and the entire Bible. Although we are quite familiar with this concept, I believe we need to continually be reminded of this powerful and challenging command… Especially in a world that is broken by sin and infiltrated by evil.

So, how are you doing in this area? That’s what John asks us in our scripture passage this week.

To prepare, read 1 John 3:10-24 and Genesis 4:1-16.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

For the last 2 weeks, John has been warning his readers about the world– a way of living in rebellion against God and his truth. It is a place filled with temptation and deception that can distract and confuse every one of us.

Yet John wants us to have joy and hope in the midst of this. How is that possible? We will hear the answer this Sunday.

To prepare, read 1 John 2:28-3:10.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

1 John 2:18-27– Don’t Be Deceived

September 11, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: 1 John

Message: Don’t Be Deceived

In this message, we look at 1 John 2:18-27. Last week, John told his readers not to love the world. In this passage he tells his readers, basically, don’t be deceived. There is much opposition to the things of God in the world today– and especially opposition to Jesus Christ. How are we to approach this opposition? John tells us words that give hope in the face of adversity.

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

Have you ever heard about the “antichrist”? John mentions him in the passage we are looking at this Sunday. It is important for us to understand that we live in a world that is opposition to and rebellion against God. That is one of the reasons John tells us in 1 John 2:15, “Do not love the world or anything in the world.

In 1 John 2:18-29, John is going to warn us not to be deceived by the people of the world. This is an important topic in our culture today. Each of us is bombarded by so much information and so many opinions it can be difficult to identify and follow the truth. It was the same in John’s time. So, how can we prevent being deceived by these different voices we hear every day?

That’s what John we teach us this Sunday. To prepare, read 1 John 2:18-29 and see if you can discover some of his secrets to a firm and unshakable faith.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

September 4th News: Don’t Love The World

September 2, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

We live in a culture and a world that defines success, purpose, and fulfillment in a much different way than the Bible does. How do we walk through our lives faithful to the things of God when we are surrounding by a system that is in rebellion against God?

It is not an easy task… But it is one we can accomplish and, in fact are called to do. This week, John will share some thoughts with us about how we should relate to the world around us. They are challenging words, but they are truths that can set us free from bondage in which we often find ourselves ensnared.

To prepare, read 1 John 2:15-17.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
