Pastor Donna Schultz continues the Sermon Series on 1 John: The Inside Story with “Keep Your Fork”:
1 John 5: 1 to 5
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
He is the Son of God – the only way to the Father.
To love God is to love those around us.
The most successful investor was Noah – he floated stock while everything around him went into liquidation.
The most successful female investor was Pharaoh’s daughter – she went to the Nile bank and floated a prophet.
First of all our love must be for Christ.
There are three pieces of dessert:
- His laws are not burdensome.
- We are overcomers by getting to know Jesus Christ as our Saviour.
- We may know that we have eternal life.
