08 Jan “Qualify for a Full Reward”
This letter was written by the Apostle John and the message of this short letter is for us today and it is relevant to us. The 6 words in verse 8, “that you may be rewarded fully” provide a key to unlock how to qualify for full reward, that is how to live and work down here so that at the Judgment Seat of Christ we may be rewarded and not to suffer loss (1 Corin 아이튠즈 스토어 음악 다운로드. 3:11-15; 2 Corin. 5:10)
We must be full of love for all people, and especially for members of the family of believers (Gal.6:10). Christians are to be love-filled (John 13:14; 1 John 3:11-12; 1 Corin 나쁜형사 11회 다운로드. 13:4-7)
We must prove and demonstrate our love by our obedience. Love is not only talking, but walking (v.6) If our hearts are filled with the love of Christ and for Him, the proof will be seen in our obedience, we shall proof our love by keeping His commandments (John 14:15) It is hypocritical to profess to love Him if we are not obeying Him 히든싱어5 5회 다운로드. When Peter told the Lord that he loved Him, Jesus said, “Feed My lambs”, go and proof it.
We must safeguard the truth of the Gospel, in verse 7 and 8 we see how important John felt the truth to be: The truth as an experience V.1; as a motive V.2; as a standard V4; as a power V Pastor Kim's Sermon. 5,6,8; as a home V9; and as a test V. 10-11, love should be in truth V.1; Jesus is the Son of the Father V.3; walk in truth V4.
The truth of the Gospel has been committed to us and we are to safeguard it and contend for it 정음글로벌 다운로드. There are false teachers on every hand V.7, they show the character of the future Antichrist, they are seen as false deceivers so we are to guard the truth concerning The Person of Jesus Christ V2-3; The work of Christ V7. We are to be wary of false teachers and of false teaching and prophecies V8.; Acts 20:28-30
We are to keep the various aspects of the Gospel truth in balance. This word is needed today when some Christians are taking one precious aspect of the truth and running it to death, thus getting off-balance. V9, “anyone who runs ahead” refers the danger of going beyond the teaching of the Bible, DO NOT take any truth out of context, show signs of pride and arrogance, know them by their fruits- John 7:15-20
