Assured by Faith
November 8, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This Sunday we conclude our study of 1 John entitled “Blessed Assurance” with a look at how our faith in Jesus can give us the assurance of our salvation that God means for us to have. Read 1 John 5 with particular attention to vs 4-5. How can you overcome the world?
Assured by Love
November 1, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we will be studying 1 John 3:11-22; 4:7-21 together and examining the notion that we can find assurance of our salvation in God’s love – in acting out God's love towards others and in recognizing – over and over again – how much God loves us. Read the text and jot down what it says about loving other people as Jesus does along with all things profound truths about how much God loves us – what He gave up and is still doing for us today
Assured by the Holy Spirit
October 25, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we are looking into 1 John 4:1-8 and examining the 5 tests the preacher of old Jonathan Edwards drew from the text for determining if a thing (idea, action, movement, teaching etc.) is from God. One of the great reasons we deal with doubt in our eternity is because there are so many lies out there. How do we determine what is true? The Holy Spirit is there to help us with this.
Assured by Adoption
October 18, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we look at 1 John 3:1-10. We are talking about how assuring it ought to be that we are children of God. Read the text and examine what it means to be a child of God – how that knowledge to affect our everyday lives. Also, consider what this text has to say about being a child of God and dealing with sin in our lives.
Assured by a purpose
October 11, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we examine the purpose of your life in 1 John 2:7-17. We encourage you to spend some time prayerfully reading the text, perhaps once a day, and jotting down any thoughts or questions that may arise from it. What is John saying here about the purpose of your life? Also, see John 13:34-35.
