The confession of faith, “Jesus is Lord!”, is a life-giving affirmation.  The faith that is reflected in that a statement is the pathway to life, because the faith that lies at the root of that declaration opens the way into a life-giving communion with the living God of heaven and earth.  The Christian faith is not simply a set of ideas that we are invited to agree to.  The Christian faith is not simply a moral or ethical code that we are invited to live by.  The Christian faith is fundamentally about a life-giving relationship with person — the Lord Jesus Christ who has come in the flesh and who lives forever.  In this sermon, I delve into the truth and power of that reality.

Read: 1 John 4:1-6.

Then, listen to: “Words from the Beloved Apostle:  Living through Jesus.”
