Description: Since God promises to forgive us when we confess our sins and since we will never be perfect in this life, why worry about sin? Why strive to be holy? What’s the point? Those were the questions that John was dealing with in the first century church and those same questions remain in the church today. Find out how a correct view of sin actually leads, and spurs, us to a godly life.
Description: In this morning’s passage, John responds to the second of three errors found in this section. All of these errors have to do with a false view of sin. The first error essentially taught that sin doesn’t matter, whereas the second error teaches that sin doesn’t exist. The seriousness of these errors is that it undermines the atonement and robs the Gospel of it’s Good News.
Description: There were false teachers in the early church who were teaching that they were in fellowship with God even while they were living a life of immorality; and in today’s message, we see that John argues against such an idea.
Description: In the fourth verse of chapter one, John quotes the words of Jesus Himself — who not only is the Root of our joy — but who also gave His joy to us … a joy unchanging in the midst of circumstance.
