Publisher's Description

Overview


How do you know you are an authentic Christian? How do we recognize true Christianity in the spiritual maze and religious muddle in which we find ourselves in today?
The small but important letter that we call 1 John presents us with three indisputable tests regarding authentic Christianity. We must pass all three tests at the same time to know with assurance that we are living a life pleasing to God.


Session One



Jesus Christ Is Central

Jesus is the basis of our faith and fellowship.

1 John 1:1 4


In this first study, we will see that John presents Jesus Christ as the basis of our faith and our fellowship.

Session Two



God Is Light

God illuminates what should be exposed in us.

1 John 1:5 10


Light has a demanding quality; it exposes what we sometimes want to hide in the darkness. In the spiritual life, we call this confession.

Session Three



Live with Assurance

God knows us, and we can know him.

1 John 2:1 17


Christianity stands at the crossroads between two great truths. It declares that God knows us. Then there is the assurance that we can know God. This study will outline for us how we can live with that assurance.

Session Four



Confidence Before God

We can know the truth from a lie.

1 John 2:18 29


This study will show what it means to live in the last hour. In a spiritual climate that can easily be marked by despair and disbelief, John writes to us so that we can live with confidence.

Session Five



Hope Is Our Bedrock

For Christians, hope is not simply wishful thinking.

1 John 3:1 10


In this study we will see how hope is to be a moral force in our lives, influencing the way we live in the present.

Session Six



Love Is Action

We prove our faith by our love.

1 John 3:11 24


In this study, we will see that the ministry of love is not a mystical feeling, but is to be given practical expression in our lives and relationships.

Session Seven



Telling Truth from Lies

We recognize heresy when we are well acquainted with the truth.

1 John 4:1 6


We live in the midst of a cacophony of spiritual voices. Which one should we follow? We will see in this study what points of belief are necessary if we are to validate something as true.

Session Eight



God s Love Overflows

We love through God s acceptance and love for us.

1 John 4:7 21


God is love. This is perhaps the most basic statement we can make about the nature of God. But love is not just warm sentiment. God s love demands a practical response from us.

Session Nine



Victory in Jesus

We overcome with confidence through Jesus Christ.

1 John 5:1 21


We know the word Nike as a popular brand of sportswear and running shoes. But it s also a word straight from the New Testament, and especially from 1 John. Nike meant victory.
