Assurance For Our Hearts

1 John, Media, Sermons | by Pastor David Parker

1 John

In many respects the whole book of 1 John is one big test, answering the question: How can we have assurance that we are truly His children and He is truly our treasure? John continues to unpack these themes in chapters 3 and 4, giving us the test of whether or not we are children of Him by the way we understand His love for us, and in turn our love for others. Today we’re gong to look at how we gain assurance for our hearts and confidence before Him through the Gospel and genuine brotherly love.

Love One Another

1 John, Media, Sermons | by Daniel Hallak

1 John

In 1 John 3:11-18, John is circling back to the centrality of love to the good news of Jesus. John continues his description of two paths we can take in life. He starts with a contrast between love as evidence of life and hate as evidence of death and then he demonstrates the heart of love through Jesus perfect sacrifice for us. John ends this section of his book with a challenge to love each other in generous, practical ways.

The Reason the Son of God Appeared

1 John, Media, Sermons | by James Rayment

1 John

At the half way point of his letter, 1 John 3:4-10, John paints a picture of Jesus’ power in ending the central confict of history. Not only did He defeat the devil, but He is actively at work destroying sin in our lives. On this backdrop, John shows us the profound effect God’s adoption of us has and tells us the marks of the children of God and how to tell them apart from the children of the devil.

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.
