Confidence in the True God

1 John: Living in the Love of God, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Craig Sturm

1 John: Living in the Love of God

False teachers had left John’s congregations shaken. He wrote this letter to assure those who remained that since they were faithful to the fundamentals of the faith (a proper view of Christ, obedience, love) their salvation was sure. Today we will see five statements of certainty. Five magnificent, God-glorifying, Jesus-exalting, Spirit-trusting, assurance-giving, foundation-under-our feet-building truths that bring his letter to a glorious crescendo.

Born of God to Believe

1 John: Living in the Love of God, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Craig Sturm

1 John: Living in the Love of God

In 1 John 5:1-12, John will revisit and summarize what he has been centered on for the first four chapters. Today, we will particularly shine the light on John’s use of the language of “believe.” We will see that, by God’s gracious work, we are able to believe in Jesus. And that belief in Jesus works its way out in the natural “fruit” of love and obedience, and the strength to overcome all barriers in its way.
