1 John 4: Real vs Rotten
In the first part of 1 John 4, we're going to look at how to trust what we hear and to understand what comes from the Spirit of God and what comes from anywhere else. Things that come from the Spirit of God will last and can be trusted, but anything else will fade away.
A trust and a belief in Jesus because of his Holy Spirit leads to eternal life. It's a power that overcomes anything this world has to offer.
Remember, one of the purposes of 1 John was to remind believers of the reality of what they believe. This is an evergreen message: Look to Jesus, know Jesus, trust Jesus, follow Jesus.
