Passage: 1 John 5:13-21

Speaker: Will Pavone

Series: 1 John

Category: Sunday Worship

I. We can know with certainty that we have eternal life!

1 John 5:13

13I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.

II. We can know with certainty that God hears us when we pray!

1 John 5:14

14And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.

1 John 5:15

15And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.

1 John 5:16

16If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask, and God will give him life—to those who

1 John 5:16

commit sins that do not lead to death. There is sin that leads to death; I do not say that one should pray for that.

1 John 5:17

17All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that does not lead to death.

III. We can know with certainty that Christ will protect us from the evil one!

1 John 5:18

18We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects

1 John 5:18

him, and the evil one does not touch him.

1 John 5:19

19We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

IV. We can know with certainty that Jesus is the true God!

1 John 5:20

20And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true;

1 John 5:20

and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.

1 John 5:21

21Little children, keep yourselves from idols.

“There's more than one answer to these questions pointing me in a crooked line and the less I seek my source

for some definitive the closer I am to fine.”
