The Invisible String
Love Brings Joy
I John 5:3-5,9- 21 (NIV)
1 John 5:13-15 – “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us- whatever we ask- we know that we have what we asked of him.”
1. Eternal Life Connects us to God’s Heart
1 John 5:3-5,19 - “For this is love for God, to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome. For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world –even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. We know that we are children of God.”
2. Eternal Life Satisfies our Every Desire, Ultimate Joy
1 John 5:9-11 - “We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater, because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony that God has given about his Son. And this is the testimony; God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life, whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
Do you really believe God’s testimony is greater?
3. Eternal Life Means we can ask questions and still know him who is true
1 John 5:18-20 - “We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. We know also that the Son of God has come
and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.”
