Please join Pastor Dustin Rogers today as he teaches from 1 John 1:9. Verses like 1st John 1:9 can often be reduced to being a “go-to” verse to make a point or defend a doctrine. While it is a wonderful “go-to” verse on forgiveness, it’s much more. Today we will he enter the Gates of Grace and while inside these gates we find a world of pure exhilaration for the Christian.
John’s reflection on the nature of our relationship with God and how sin affects that now points to the second and third claims and pointing us toward denial and its effects on our lives. We walk through this fight that leads some of us to say that we have no sin nature or that we really haven’t sinned. The end result is a gap in our relationship with God.
In light of the events of the last year and many in our Heritage Family that are going through a difficult time we pause today our study of 1 John and reflect on John 10. Please join Pastor Dustin Rogers today as we look at the beautiful imagery of our Savior as your Good Shepherd. Indeed, our Shepherd is wonderfully Good.
Please join Pastor Dustin Rogers as he brings us God’s word from 1 John 1:8-10. In 1 John 1:8-10, John exposes humanity’s propensity to deny or disregard our sinfulness. But, when we fail to consider, comprehend, and confess our sin, we don’t receive forgiveness. You cannot experience the glory of verse 9 if you are not found in verses 8 and 10. You cannot experience grace if you don’t think you need it.
The moments of our lives can seem to tell people everything about our lives. But as John points out in 1 John 1:5-7, our life is a journey and it’s the path of that journey that informs us of our claims of being in Christ.
Vision Sunday. Please join Pastor Dustin Rogers today as he teaches from 1 John 1:4.
It is true that each of us is to pursue holiness individually. We are to seek God’s will and gifts in our life, allowing that process to perfect us until Christ comes again. But we are also called to pursue holiness communally. That is the focus Hebrews 12:12-17 as it calls us to strive for holiness together.
As we begin our study of 1 John, Pastor Dustin unpacks the first 3 verses to lay the foundation for John’s credibility to share the story of the incredible person of Jesus. He was there, he heard, he saw and he touched the events first hand and uses this to hook us into what he is about to share.
