John's Letters | Avenues of Assurance
Jan 19, 2020 | Dr. James Carroll
1 John 4:13-16 | Assurance of God's Abiding
1 John 4:13-16
Overview - We can rest in our relationship to God because of His Spirit in us.
1. God's Spirit in us is proof of our relationship to God.
2. Our confession of Jesus is proof of our relationship to God.
3. Our relationship to love is proof of our relationship to God.
John’s letters are very short, sometimes overlooked, yet powerful. He walks believers down three avenues of assurance – right doctrine, right living, real love – to remind us of the work God is doing in us. These letters give confidence to genuine believers to keep walking in faith and clarity to unbelievers inviting them turn to God in faith.
