Join us for our sermon series on the book of First John entitled “Assurance of God’s Love”. The apostle John warns us of false teaching that attempts to draw people away from the truth of the Gospel, spreading the disease of unbelief by denying that Jesus Christ came in the flesh. The antidote for this false teaching is founded upon the truth in God’s word which declares that Jesus Christ is God’s Son who came in the flesh to rescue people from their sins. Through vivid comparisons of light versus darkness, truth versus error, love versus hate, Christians are called to know the truth of the Gospel, love one another, and abide in God. Rather than succumb to the ungodly desires of the world, God’s people are to overcome the world through their relationship with Jesus Christ who is greater than those who deny him.
All of this springs from God who first loved us: “God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.” This “Assurance of God’s Love” breeds confidence in those who believe in the name of the Son of God – that they may love one another and know they have eternal life.
