Speaker: Pastor Mark
This morning we begin a summer series through I John, and I’m excited to see how this will give shape to our community moving forward. Our sermon series on Acts focused on how the Holy Spirit used the early church to go out and preach. It records the nascent beginnings of the church. I John, on the other hand, comes later in church history, where troubles, heresies, and division had already impacted the church. Written between the 70s-90s, the Apostle John wrote this letter in his old age. He brings tremendous wisdom, wit, and urgency to his writing, desperately pointing the church to the Gospel and our response of love to God and others in response. I John reminds the church of the main things to hold on in response to the troubles that lie ahead.
