15-Living as God's Kids

June 27, 2021 • Pastor David Henderson

Have you ever felt like you don’t know what’s true? Confused and overwhelmed, you’re at a loss. In that moment, what if you found that you had the truth all along? You’re convinced and confident! You know that you know, and you won’t settle for less. But how?

We believe many things in this life because we have been told they are true—the sun, for example, how do you know that it is there. Sure, you can see something in the sky. It is bright, hot, and supposedly 93 million miles away, but how do you know that it is there? You cannot touch it, and you cannot smell it; you cannot travel to it. At the end, when it comes to the existence of the sun, you, me, we must trust. This week we discuss One we cannot see, but is worthy of all of our trust.

In his inaugural address to a nation ravaged by the Great Depression, FDR spoke these famous words, "let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." For the believer, is this true? Do we have to fear even fear? Pastor Chris discusses in this week's message, "No Fear!"

Tina Turner once said that love was a “secondhand emotion” and a “sweet old fashion notion,” is this true? For the world, perhaps, for the believer, absolutely not. This week we focus on 1 John 4:7-11 and see “What’s love got to do with it.”

Feelings fool us. Sometimes it feels like feelings are all we have to go on, especially when it comes to things we can’t see. But is that true? We can’t see spiritual things, but we can test them to figure out what’s true. And our test is much better than a feeling.

Most of us have run into people who say one thing and live a completely different way, we call them hypocrites. For those of us who say we are Christians, the world is watching us closely to see if we really believe what we say we do. This week the Apostle John calls on us to "Let Love Live," by showing this world our love for one another.

We live in a world focused on race, political affiliation, etc., more than I ever remember in my lifetime. The word “tribal” has been used to describe the situation in which we find ourselves, and yet most don’t see that they are missing that two tribes do exist, but they are not what they think. This week Pastor Chris addresses these two tribes in his message, “Who’s your daddy!?”

Where in life do you excel? How much practice have you had to do and continue to be as good as you are? Could you be better? How much more practice would that take? If you stopped practicing today, what would happen to your skill level? How does this relate to the Christian life? This week Pastor Chris tackles this question in his message, “Practice how you play.”

Lies abound, confusion abounds, but for the believer in Christ, Truth can and should abound. This Truth is not a mere piece of information, and it is living and powerful. So, Christian, as we face down the Goliaths and antichrist’s of this world, “Let Truth Live in You.”

Antichrists. Yes, that’s plural. Jesus said we’d see them and John, one of his closest followers, gave the church a way to respond to them. Is there really more than one antichrist? Should we worry? Should we be afraid? If you know the truth, DUCK!

The world around us is flying out of control and coming against the ways of God. What is our role as believers in Christ? We must prepare for battle. But what does battling for Christ look like in today’s world? 1 John 2:12-17
