1 John - Part 2 - A Credible Witness
1 John is an exciting letter - rich in application. We hear a lot about engaging our culture today. There's this idea of speaking into the worlds culture. The world is anti-Jesus and anti-God. 1 John gives us insight into how to bring light into this otherwise dark world. 1 John 1:1-4 is our focus today. John gives us an eyewitness account concerning the Word of Life - Jesus Christ himself. He walked with and learned from Jesus and he is testifying to what he knows firsthand. This preface sets the stage for the message he wants us to embrace - the proclamation of Jesus Christ.
Nothing Is More Relevant Than Jesus!In a culture littered with empty promises and bankrupt ideas, the message of God's love and grace in Christ shines as a beacon guiding anyone who will respond to true rest and an eternal purpose.As you have discovered in your life, Jesus's relevance never fades. He is always the answer to the needs of mankind. Our progressive culture will say otherwise, but regardless of its advances, society never will be able to offer eternal life to those dead in sin, forgiveness to the sinner, or hope for the heart.As my thanks for your gift this month, we want to send you a copy of The Power of 8. In this CD series Bob Christopher lays out the foundation of our belief system. This is not warmed-over religion, but the life-changing reality of Jesus Christ.
