Sermon #39 — Words from the Beloved Apostle: Living through Jesus — 1 John 4:1-6
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.
