The Fundamentals of Assurance

April 23, 2017 Speaker: Pastor David Lovi Series: 1 John: The Believer's Assurance

Passage: 1 John 2:12–2:14

The Fundamentals of Assurance

Apr 23, 2017
Pastor David Lovi
Scripture: 1 John 2:12–2:14

The Fundamentals of Assurance_PP

The authors of scripture, especially when it comes to the epistles of the NT, were writing to address issues going on in the church. To the church at Galatia,

Paul wrote his letter to remind them of the true gospel because they had gone astray into legalism.

To the twelve tribes of the Diaspora, James wrote his letter to show how works must follow faith or that faith is actually not legitimate.

And in the first letter that the apostle John wrote the churches, he’s writing to a fledgling church who’s being attacked on all sides and who are really in need of assurance of their salvation and of their standing with God.

In our passage today, 1 John 2:12–2:14, John gives us a recall to the fundamentals and he extinguishes three fiery darts of Satan that the devil uses to take away the assurance of God’s people.

He writes to three different groups in the church Each with their own struggle and he helps them remember the truth of who they are in Christ.
