Part 1: Walking in Love (1 of 3)
Series: Living the Life
Stuart Briscoe
1 John 3:10b-24

"Love" is a common theme both of Christian and secular thought and interest. Because of this, Christians need to be careful to understand the uniqueness of the love that characterizes the children of God: what it is, what it does, and what it says.

I. Love-What It Is. v. 16

A. The need to know what love is.
1. We need to know what it is because we may not have experienced it.

2. We need to be clear what it is because there is much confusion about it.

3. We need to understand the difference between human and divine love.


Part 2: Walking in Confidence
Series: Living the Life
Stuart Briscoe
1 John 4:7-5:21

In this world there is no shortage of grounds for doubts and fears. Christians are not exempt, but they should learn to overcome their doubts and fears and live with confidence.

I. Confidence-We Know We Live in Him and He in Us. 4:13

A. By acknowledging that Jesus is the Son of God. v. 15

B. By recognizing the transforming work of love in our lives. v. 12
1. God is not visible to human eyes.

2. God's love is visible in us when expressed towards each other.


Part 3: Walking in Truth
Series: Living the Life
Stuart Briscoe
1 John 4:1-21

The Christian church in its early days was very conscious of the struggle for the souls of men and women between "the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood." Modern culture tends to disregard such concepts, but the church must take them seriously, as John did.

I. Recognizing the Importance of Truth.

A. The claim of Jesus-"I came into the world to testify to the truth." John 18:37

B. The ministry of the Spirit-"He will guide you into all truth." John 16:13

C. The basis of worship-"[We] must worship in spirit and in truth." John 4:24

D. The pathway to freedom-"the truth will set you free." John 8:32
