Be Honest – When it comes to our relationship with our fellow Christians and more importantly with God, we need to be honest. We need to ensure that we are abiding in Him so he abides in us. We need to ensure we love our brothers as He loves us and so we need to be totally honest about our relationships as a Christian. Are you honest? Nathan Tarrant looks at 1 John 4:20-21.
How can a believer know that his love for the Father is being perfected? There are in fact four aspects that John covers and the first is that of confidence. Nathan Tarrant looks at 1 John 4:17-19 and looks at what is fear and why we should never be fearful, in fact the opposite if we call ourselves Christians.
What God is Doing – We have seen that God is love and that through that love God has done something quite remarkable. But is that it? Is God actually doing anything else? John explains in verses 1 John 4:12-16 exactly what God is doing, and how we are able to determine our assurance of salvation through two simple tests.
What God Has Done – In 1 John 4:7-8 John explains that God is love. If God is love what has He actually done for us? What has God done to show that He actually loves us? In verses 9-11 John explains exactly what God has done to show His love to the whole world.
What God is… Nathan Tarrant looks at the three essences of God and what 1 John 4:7-8 John explains about one of the natures of God and what God is. This helps us to understand the nature of God so that we can draw closer to Him.
Why We Must Test The Spirits – The Apostle John tells us why we must test the Spirit as he gives us two tests we can use to know if the Spirit if of truth-from God, or of error-from Satan in verse 1 to 6 of chapter 4.
