1 John

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 5. Today we come to the end of our study of 1 John. This is the epilogue of the book, from the 13th verse of this chapter to the end: John's final words, his parting words, an afterword to us in which he sums up some of the great emphases of...

1 John

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 5. We’re continuing in our study of 1 John today, and we're coming close to the end of the book. Now much of the book of 1 John has been about tests, three tests in particular that the Lord gives us whereby we may measure the genuineness of our profession. These three...

1 John

The choir has just sung of our love for God, and that perfectly segways into our text this morning which comes from 1 John chapter 5, verses 1 through 5. Before we read the text together, let's look to God in prayer. Let's pray.

Lord, we are a needy people. We cannot even understand Your word unless Your Spirit comes and gives us illumination. So come,...

1 John

I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 4. We’re returning to our study of 1 John today. One of the things that has become apparent to us through this study is that John has love on his mind. John is very concerned to exhort the Christian church to love, and especially to a love which expresses itself not merely in a claimed love of...

1 John

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 4, beginning in the 7th verse. We’re continuing to make our way through this book, and we've really come to a culminating passage. John has a lot more to say, but he's come back in the passage we're going to read today to the subject of love as a test of...

1 John

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 4. As we've been looking through this book, we have seen John do three things repeatedly. First of all, in the first chapter of the book especially, John was concerned to make sure that we as Christians understood the relationship of sin and holiness in the Christian life. On the one hand...

1 John

Our Scripture reading this morning comes from 1 John in chapter 3 and verses 10 through 24. Let's come before God, and particularly the Holy Spirit, and ask for that work of illumination that He gives upon His word. Let's pray together.

Holy Spirit, You caused this word to be written. Now we ask that You would break forth and give us light and understanding. And...

1 John

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 2, as we continue to make our way through this great, short letter of John to the Church and to us. We've seen all along John giving us tests to show the marks of Christians. We have seen a doctrinal test, a test that pertains to the person of Jesus Christ: Does...

1 John

Jesus’ words to the church in the early chapters and verses of the book of Revelation prepare us well for the word that we hear from 1 John, and I'd invite you to take your Bibles, if you have them, and turn with me to 1 John chapter 2. We’ll be looking at the 24th to the 28th verses today, and so perhaps it would be...

1 John

Amen. If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 2 as we continue to work our way through this letter of the Apostle John to the church. As we've worked through this letter over the last several months, we have said that over and over John's concern is to show us what the marks of a true Christian are. What's...

1 John

I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 2 and to the 18th verse as we continue to make our way through this letter. Over the last number of weeks, we have seen John digress from a plan that he has been pursuing in the first two chapters to give, first, a word of encouragement and, then, a word of exhortation. A couple of...

1 John

We come now in our study of the epistle of 1 John to chapter 2, and we’ll be looking at verses 15 through 17. Let's come to the Lord together in prayer before we look at this passage.

Lord, we find ourselves on our knees, a needy people. We find ourselves disappointed. We find ourselves hurting. We find ourselves full of experiences of joy. We find...

1 John

Turn with me to 1John chapter 2, as we continue our study through this great book. Now, it's been almost a month since we've been together in 1 John, so we should perhaps remind ourselves of what we've seen so far. This book is a book about the Christian life. In fact, John tells us in this book that to live the Christian life is to experience a...

1 John

Let's ask the Holy Spirit to give us illumination and understanding in the word that he has caused to be written. Let's pray together.

Our Father, we come before you now as a needy people. Lord Jesus, we want to love You and to emulate Your love. Holy Spirit, would You to come and to make this word which we are about to read, Your word,...

1 John

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 2. We’re going to be looking at verses 3-6 today as we continue to work our way through this great book of Scripture. Let's refresh our memory of what we've learned so far. In chapter 1, especially from verse 5 to the end of the chapter, John is responding to false teaching...

1 John

Turn with me to 1 John, and look at chapter 1 before we begin to look at chapter 2. If you don't have your Bibles, the pew Bible is available to you, and 1 John is towards the end of the New Testament right before the book of Revelation and before the book of Jude and, of course, 2nd and 3rd John, and so right towards...

1 John

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John 1. We’ll begin looking at the eighth verse today. For a couple of weeks now, we've been looking at the book of 1 John as part of a series on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd John; and we've already said that 1 John is a book which deals with...

1 John

We’re continuing to work our way through this book and the two small letters of 2nd and 3rd John that follow it. The last time we were to together we said that John in this book shows us how the Christian life expresses itself doctrinally, relationally, and morally. That is, how it expresses itself in the truth that we believe, in the love that we show...

1 John

I invite you to turn with me to 1 John, verses 1-4. Today we are beginning a new sermon series on the little books of 1, 2, and 3 John. Our focus is going to be on the Christian life. We want to consider how true Christians are manifested by what they believe and how they relate to one another in the world, and by how they live...
