Series: 1 John
1 John 2:12-17
(Note: Only the first 17 minutes of the sermon were recorded.) John reminds us of our identity as God’s children, with our various stages of spiritual growth; and warns us against the downward pull of the fallen world, in which we live as God’s faithful witnesses, living godly lives in an ungodly world.
1 John 2:1-2
(Sermon audio is unavailable for this message.) When we as believers sin (whether in thought, word, action, or omission), we must realize the reality of sin (what it is and does), and our relationship with Christ, who is our Helper and has solved our sin problem, and has transformed us from habitual sinners to God’s dear children, his saints who desire to overcome sin’s power.
1 John 1:5-10
True believers have seen the Light, Jesus Christ, by an experience of life-changing conversion; and true believers keep on walking in the Light, demonstrating a personal relationship with Christ, enjoying fellowship with God’s people, freedom from sin’s power, and have received a calling to spread the light of Christ in our sphere of influence.
