True Life in the Son (1 John 5:12-15)
August 6, 2017 Preacher: Bob DeWaay
Scripture: 1 John 5:12-15
John makes a very strong claim that eternal life is found through Christ and nowhere else. The life that believers have in the Son is life in the greatest sense of the word. This gift of life is true for all who believe in Christ no matter what difficulties or sorrows life in this world brings. Believing in the name of Christ denotes believing what the Bible says about His person and work. We learn that God bids us come to Him and ask. These passages assure us that He hears us. He has our best interest in mind and His answers will be in accordance with that. We must reject false teachings on prayer that claim that if we know how to say it right and have enough faith we can force God to do our bidding or that we can control the outcome. True faith trusts God’s promises and knows not only that He hears us but cares for us.
