Called Children of God

September 5, 2010 | Series: The Letters of John. Scripture: 1 John. Speakers: Pastor Mitch Freeman.

1 John 2:28-3:10
Scripture uses the concept of family to communicate wonderful truths about the Christian life. It tells us we have been adopted as children of God; he is our Father; Jesus is our Brother; we have an inheritance; and many other truths. In this text, John draws upon that familial concept to teach us about sin. After declaring the wonderful truth that we are called children of God, he then turns to say, “Now act like it and obey.” To the apostle John, sin is disobedience to the Father.
