In the United States everybody thinks something when they hear the word, CHURCH.
At its core, all RELIGION Is about making sure me and God are good.
Easy Question: How close can I get to SIN without actually SINNING?
We never REDUCE a HEALTHY relationship down to just obedience.
1 John 2:1-11 pg. 1,899
v.1 “My dear CHILDREN, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin we have an ADVOCATE with the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous One.”
v.2 “He is the ATONING SACRIFICE for our sins, and not only for OURS, but also for the sins of the WHOLE WORLD.”
v.4 “Whoever says I KNOW him, but does not do what He COMMANDS is a LIAR and the TRUTH is not IN that person.”
v.5 “But, if anyone OBEYS his word, LOVE for God is truly made COMPLETE in them. This is how we KNOW we are in Him: Whoever CLAIMS to live in Him must LIVE as Jesus DID.”
v.7 “Dear friends, I am not writing you a NEW COMMAND but an OLD one, which you have had since the BEGINNING.”
v.8 “…its truth is SEEN in HIM and in YOU, because the DARKNESS is PASSING and the true light is already SHINING.”
v.10 “Anyone who LOVES their brother and sister LIVES in the LIGHT, and there is nothing in them to make them STUMBLE.”
v.11 “But anyone who HATES a brother or a sister is in the DARKNESS and walks about in the DARKNESS.”
EVERYBODY is somebody Jesus died, FOR.
If you’re a follower of Jesus:
A good question: Is this a SIN?
A more important question: What does LOVE require of me?
“…GRACE and TRUTH came through Jesus Christ.” John 1:17
If you want to know what Jesus MEANT by what Jesus SAID, then watch what Jesus DID.
