It’s a matter of life and death!
Hi friends! I hope you have had a great week and are eager to gather again to worship Jesus with brothers and sisters in Christ. Last week in our studies in 1st John, God showed us three birthmarks of authentic faith: True Belief, True Love, and a True Life (1 Jn. 5:1-5). In verses 6-12, John does a deeper dive into the centerpiece of True Belief, the doctrine of Christ. As he continues to battle against false teaching about Jesus, John wants to help his people have precision about the object of their faith…for he knows that this is a matter of life and death. “Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life”. (1 Jn. 5:12)
