These things we know…1 John

We just finished studying through 1 John on Sunday morning at North Village Church.  Looking back over our time together there is a theme throughout 1 John.  See below:

We know we have eternal life

We know we He hears us

We know we can overcome

We know we have an enemy

We know the One to worship

Through faith in Jesus’ work on the cross we can know, intellectually and relationally, we can know.  It isn’t from the confidence of our moral behavior and feeling like we are doing the right thing.  It isn’t from our emotional experiences and feeling close to God.  It isn’t from our religious excercises.  It is from our trust being daily anchored in Christ’s work on the cross.
