Children of God

1 John, Media, Sermons | by Pierce Martin

1 John

This morning we find ourselves in the middle of First John. Thus far in John’s letter, we have seen his pastoral care for the church: exhorting and teaching them to hold fast to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to see it worked out in their lives. In our passage today, John shifts from exhortation to lovingly reminding these Christians and us of the abundant riches and privileges of what it means that God has not only saved us through Jesus but has made us his children.

Spiritual Discernment in a Confusing Age

1 John, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Craig Sturm

1 John

As we continue our journey through the book of 1 John, we find ourselves this morning exploring an intriguing theme found in 2:18-27 & 4:1-6 — how can you know truth from error? John lays out a clarion call for true followers of Jesus to practice spiritual discernment — especially in light of and in contrast to the false teachers that had departed from them. In the midst of confusion, clarity is possible, and ought to be sought.

Abiding and Overcoming

1 John, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Luke Davis

1 John

John is writing this letter to churches which have been infiltrated by people teaching an untrue story. In an effort to correct and tell a better tale John has reminded his hearers of the holy God in whose light we may know true goodness and beauty. In accord with His glorious light followers of Jesus may confidently know that they are children of God by testing their lives, as we saw last week. This week, in 1 John 2:12-17, we will encounter a delayed but welcome greeting, the first command in the letter, and an impassioned appeal.

A New Commandment

1 John, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Luke Davis

1 John

Thus far in 1 John, we have reveled with John at the reality-shaking truth that God became a man in the person of Jesus. This God is holy; in His perfect light not a smidgen of darkness may reside. Jesus, the advocate of rebels, turned God’s just anger against our sin into favor through His death and subsequent victory over the grave. Today in 1 John 2:3-11, John will introduce us to the moral and social evidences which are marks of true Christians.

Walking in the Light

1 John, Media, Sermons | by Pastor David Parker

1 John

Throughout the book of 1 John there’s several repeating themes, but the whole book is written so that we could have confidence in who He is, what He has done, and who we are. Today, in 1 John 1:5-2:2, we’re going to look at how the holiness of God shapes our fellowship with Him and how the Gospel changes us from people who walk in darkness to people who have been and are being redeemed by the Glory of God and the light of Jesus.

The Most Mature Thing We Do

Media, Other Sermons | by Bill Clem

Other Sermons
How do we determine maturity? What does it mean to be mature? Is maturity measured by our most mature act or thought? Or, is maturity measured by the most mature thing we continue to do? Or, is maturity just the matter of doing more mature things than immature things? Or, is maturity just a matter of growing older? What exactly are we aiming for? Today the apostle John, in 1 John 2:12-14, invites us to envision maturity as a process … one that might surprise you.
