Back to the Basics [1 John 2:12-14]

September 29, 2013

Sermon Notes

Date: 09/29/2013

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: 1 John

Key Text: 1 John 2:12-14

Description: John pauses in the giving of tests of salvation to draw the reader’s attention back to the objective foundation and ground of their justification.  He addresses the church in all stages of maturity, from the new believer to the spiritually mature.  This passage serves as a parenthetical comment, as it were, so that our self-reflection doesn’t leave us looking inside of us for answers but outside of ourselves to Christ.
