Johnny One Note

Jesus had a nickname for the apostle John, and so do I. To Jesus, he was a Son of Thunder. But to me, he’s Johnny One Note. That’s because he repeats himself more than any other New Testament writer. In fact, sometimes the book of 1 John sounds like a broken record. The question is,…

Don’t Get Duped

In an anti-Jesus world, anyone who is pro-Jesus feels like kin. But before you affirm their faith or follow their teachings, it would be wise to find out whether the Jesus they believe in is the same Jesus you believe in. What do true Christians believe about Jesus? That’s the question we will find answers…

What You Didn’t Know About Love

I’m sure it’s not news to you that Jesus wants us to love one another. It’s the one command upon which all others are built. But just because it’s foundational doesn’t mean we know everything God wants us to know about love. We are going to learn new dimensions of love from a very old…

Traits Of A True Christian

The language we use to describe salvation is varied-knowing God, being a Christian, having eternal life-but at the core of all that spiritual terminology is the critical question: Are you going to heaven? You may think you know the answer to that question, but how can you be certain? We will be studying 1 John…

No Reason To Hide

Imagine if an archeologist unearthed a letter from Jesus’ best friend, written to people who didn’t know Christ personally about how to get close to Him. How valuable would that letter be to you? How carefully would you want to read it? We have the letter. It’s called 1 John, and it’s in the Bible.…
