April 22, 2018 Whad’Ya Know – Good? Sin and Fellowship 1 John 2:3 Synopsis: Remember that my goal in preaching this series of sermons from 1 John is “so that you may know that you have eternal life (1 John 5:13, NIV).” I want very one to have the assurance of eternal life. I want to start today’s message by reading 1 John 2:12-14 from the NIV and then from The Message. The point is, we need to look at the meaning instead of just the wording. What was John telling us instead of what we want to hear. My primary text for today comes from 1 John 2:3. We begin our work of “knowing” as “little children” sitting at the feet of our teacher. What better way is there to learn. There is room at our teacher’s feet for anyone who desires to “know.” There are a lot of things believers need to know to get along in life. First of all, maybe even most of all, believers need to know “good” because God is Good. “Knowing” Him and living in His fellowship is to be reflected in the life of every believer because for John “knowing” is always “relational.” John cuts through the chase when he writes, “Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.” Whad’Ya Know – Good? Point to remember: “Knowing”, as John is using the term, is always “relational” not mental. Text (NIV): 1 John 2:12-14 (NIV & The Message); Psalm 73:1; Luke 18:19; 1 John 2:1-27
