1 JOHN – TRUE LIFE
Scripture Reference: 1 John 3:7-10
Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God. By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.

- We are most like Him when we are SACRIFICIALLY LOVING those around us. 11-18
- We are most like Him when we are HUMBLY PURSUING what pleases Him. 19-24
- Don’t try and be so UNTYPICAL as a Christian,
that you become UNRECOGNIZABLE as a Christian.
