God Loves You

We love because he first loved us. (1 John 4:19)

Is God Good?

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. (1 John 4:10)

Your Love is Strong

How great is the love the Father has lavished on, that we should be called children of God!  And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. (1 John 3:1)

Dealing with Distractions

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world–the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does–comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. (1 John 2:15-17)

I really love this passage of Scripture.  I love that the author, John, doesn’t beat around the bush.  He gets straight to the point.  I love that!  I learn best from those who get straight to the point.  I have a difficult time with people who beat around the bush, so I can really appreciate John’s straight forward approach to life.

Overcome the World

Who is it that overcomes the world?  Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. (1 John 5:5)

I want in on this!  I want to be an overcomer!  I want to overcome this world and it’s challenges.  Are you in?  Do you want to overcome the things of this world?  The only way to do it is by making Jesus the Lord of your life.  Hand over the keys to your pain, give Him the reins to your heart, and surrender your life to His purpose.  I promise you that you will go much further in life with Jesus as Lord, than without Him.

Jesus wants to make Himself at home in your heart.  He wants to be real to you.  He wants you to know the power of God!  He wants you to experience the love that can set you free!

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”  ~John 8:36

Do you want to experience this freedom?  You can only have freedom when you have Jesus as the Lord of your life.

“He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”  ~1 John 5:12
