"The Disciple Whom Jesus Loved" (conclusion)
It's the conclusion our fall message series. It's been a good stroll through the Book of First John (not to be confused with the Gospel of John.) It's all about loving people more, by loving Jesus more. May it be so in our lives.

LYRICS FOR WORSHIP TUNES

Your Love O Lord
Your love, oh Lord, reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness, stretches to the skies
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountain
Your justice flows like the ocean's tides
I will lift my voice, to worship You, my King
I will find my strength, in the shadow of Your wings
Make Me Yours
Lord, Jesus, I need You now, I feel so lost, like I just can’t be found
My eyes turned away, how I need to see
Just how much I need Your love surrounding me
I look to the hills, that’s where my hope comes from
Cause You are my Light, You are my salvation
Move into my heart, move into my life, Jesus
Take all that I am, my life is not mine
Make me Yours, make me Yours, make me yours
I’ll wait patiently for You, O Lord
To hear Your voice is like water for my thirsty soul
My heart turned away, how I need to see
Just how much I need Your love surrounding me
There is a Redeemer
There is a Redeemer, Jesus God's Own Son
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, Holy One
Thank You O my Father, for giving us Your Son
And leaving Your Spirit till the work on earth is done
Jesus my Redeemer, Name above all names
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, O for sinners slain
When I stand in glory I will see His face
There I'll serve my King forever, in that holy place
ABOUT TODAY'S MESSAGE:

“I Can Know that I Know that I Know.” 1 John 5:13

What on earth can we know for sure? Very little, when it comes down to it. Everything and everybody is forever changing. What if we could know that we know that we know where this life and the next is heading? It would make more difference than we can possibly imagine.

Today's Big Idea: "God-fidence"
Assurance of eternal life is an amazing benefit of believing on Jesus.

1. Why might with struggle to "know" we have eternal life?

2. Why is John so eager for us "know you have eternal life?" (v.13)

3. Where does our assurance of eternal life come from?

• Ephesians 1:7
• Romans 8:16-17

4. What are the benefits of our assurance of eternal life?

• Hebrews 6:19
• Ephesians 2:8-9
• 1 Corinthians 9:16

5. Why is the final verse of 1 John so critical? (v.5:21)
OUR RESPONSE. "God-fidence"

• Are you sure? How? Why?
• In what ways do you live like someone who is sure? Or not?
WHAT NOW? To do:

• Living like heaven is a real place.
• Concerning ourselves with the souls of men & women.
