Living Intimately With Christ

1 John 5:20-21

 

Guard yourself from Idols - 1 John 5:21

   Idolatry always starts in my heart Ezek 14:1-8

   An idol is anything that takes the place of God Ex 20:1-6

   Greed is idolatry  Eph 5:5; Col 3:5

   What are some of my idols?

 

Love the True God -   1 John 5:20

   It’s all about knowing Jesus Christ who is the true God, full deity, perfect humanity, the Son of    

     God, the Messiah, the Savior, the righteous one, the Word of Life and the Eternal Life.  

   It’s all about living intimately with Christ as a true child of God by increasing in joy, growing             

     in love, walking in the light, fellowshipping with God and others, abiding in Christ, conquering sin,    

     doing righteousness, loving my brothers, knowing that I am God’s child, praying with confidence      

     and living with Christ forever.

 

Do you want God?

Do you know God?

Do you love God?

Are you living intimately with Christ?
