A. The first ingredients necessary are…
1. Everyone who believes becomes a child of God.
“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God.” Vs 1a
2. Everyone who loves the Father loves the children of God.
“ And everyone who loves the Father loves His children, too.” Vs 1a
3. Loving God means keeping His commands.
“Loving God means keeping His commandments…” Vs 3a
4. His commands are not burdensome.
“…His commandments are not burdensome.” Vs 3b
6. And, who can win this battle? Believers!
B. God confirms these ingredients by reviews...
1. The first witness is the water.
“And Jesus Christ was revealed as God’s Son by His baptism in water…” Vs 6a
2. The second witness was the blood.
“And Jesus Christ was revealed as God’s Son…by shedding His blood on the cross…” Vs 6b
3. The third witness was the Spirit.
“And the Spirit, who is truth, confirms it with His testimony.” Vs 6c
4. All three witnesses agree on the Son of God.
“So we have these three witnesses— the Spirit, the water, and the blood—and all three agree.” Vs 7-8
5. Throughout Scripture, two or three witnesses were always needed to confirm any statement.
6. If you believe the witnesses, you can believe He has given us eternal life.
C. This recipe is not burdensome...
1. God gives us understanding to all of His will.
“And we know that the Son of God has come, and He has given us understanding…” Vs 20a
2. God wants us to know Him.
“so that we can know the true God….”
3. When we obey His commands, we live in fellowship with Him. One command will never invalidate another command.
“And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ.” Vs 20b
4. When we obey His commands, we are confident in our prayers.
5. God always empowers us to do His will.
6. God will always be faithful!
D. The primary purpose of this letter...
1. God inspired John to write this loving letter to address concerns in the church. Assurances will always affect behaviors. Assurances will always affect eternity!
2. Assurance comes with a right belief...we trust Jesus!
3. Assurance comes with right living...transformed lives!
4. Assurance comes with fellowship...loving God and loving His children!
“And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ.” Vs 20b
5. Assurance comes with the Holy Spirit…God’s Spirit within us!
6. If you believe it...then do it! The "proof is in the 'putting'".
