1 John 1:1-4 "Life through the Word"

January 5, 2014

Scripture: 1 John 1:1–1:4

Living life through trusting in the Word means not picking and choosing what to believe from the Bible; it fits together as a single story about the sinful fall of mankind and the gracious God who has a plan to redeem a people for himself.  It means proclaiming the Word of God and not inserting ourselves into the message, drawing away from the message.  Having fellowship through the Word isn't about sharing a meal-it means seeing through the eyes of the Lord, to spread the message of the Lord.  Finding joy in the Word of God frees us from the earthly things that cannot satisfy our souls.
