Crossing Over From Death to Life (1 John 3:13-15)

January 8, 2017 Preacher: Bob DeWaay

Scripture: 1 John 3:13-15

This section continues to comment on the Cain and Abel narrative in regard to Christian love. Christians are not to be shocked that the world hates us. Jesus predicted that this would happen. One reason it is important not to be amazed about this is that we might be tempted to compromise in order to get the world to like us. Christians have passed over from the sphere of death into the sphere of life. True Christians have God’s love within them and will love other Christians. People who hate believers like Cain hated Abel are those who abide in death. We must decide to not be friends with the world. The gospel calls everyone to believe in Jesus and be saved.
