This is the Message

April 23, 2017 Preacher: Chris Ritter Series: This I Know

Topic: Gospel Scripture: 1 John 1:5–2:2

This is the Message

1 John 1:5 - 2:2


Big Idea: How can I know my sins are forgiven?


3 Evidences

#1 The Outward Evidence: You walk in the light (v. 5-7)

2 results of walking in the light:
1) We have fellowship with one another
2) The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin

What is sin? Sin is anything and everything that keeps someone from right relationship with God

2 "camps" of how people perceive sin today:
1) The "No shame" camp
2) The "Full of shame" camp

#2 The Internal Evidence: You agree with God about your sin (v. 8-10)

2 results of confessing your sins:
1) Forgiveness - The debt of sin is erased from your account
2) God cleanses us from all unrighteousness

#3 The Jesus Evidence: Jesus is your Advocate (v. 1-2)

Advocate: Legal counsel, defense attorney, your representation

Propitiation: The removal of God's wrath against sinners by the death of Jesus
