Sermon #28 — Getting Rooted and Grounded in “Forever”– 1 John 2:12-17

How we interact with the “world” is a theme that is regularly addressed in the Bible.  The apostle John digs into that matter here in this passage of his first letter.  I explore a little bit of how the term “world” is used in the Bible.  It is presented in both a positive and a negative light.  The question the John helps us grapple with is how we are to live in the world without  drawing the core of our identity from it.  Who are we in Christ?  Where are the roots of our being set?  

Read 1 John 2:12-17.

Then listen to “Getting Rooted and Grounded in ‘Forever'”
