Part of the 1 John: Abundant Life series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
How do we make sure that our Christian faith is not just a phase? Can we avoid those times when we feel spiritually and emotionally weary? Jesus took steps to maintain his joy and sense of wellbeing. We should too.
1 John 2:24-29
24Therefore, as for you, let that remain in you which you heard from the beginning. If that which you heard from the beginning remains in you, you also will remain in the Son, and in the Father. 25This is the promise which he promised us, the eternal life. 26These things I have written to you concerning those who would lead you astray. 27As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don't need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him. 28Now, little children, remain in him, that when he appears, we may have boldness, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. 29If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of him.
