The Book of 1 John Pt. 4
The Apostle John concludes with the major element of this epistle – faith. To John, faith is than more mental assent, but an active trusting of oneself to God. Trust in God’s testimony about His Son not only brings salvation, but assurance that Believers belong to the Lord. In Part 4 of this four-part series, Dr. Price emphasizes the building blocks of faith.
- Faith is an action based on believing. Merely to believe will never produce anything. Those who believe Jesus is the Son of God ought also to be walking by faith and not by sight.
- The unbeliever makes God a liar by rejecting His plan of redemption. In effect the rejecter is saying, “I don’t believe it!”
- Unfortunately, many Christians have faith in the Name of Jesus as Savior, but have little faith in His Name to do such works as healing and prosperity.
- Christians should have no doubt about their relationship with God or their acceptance by Him. They must be assured that they have eternal life as a present possession.
- Lastly, is there such a thing as a silent prayer? Absolutely not! Dr. Price illustrates how to pray according to God’s will, and explains why you can have confidence that God has heard that prayer.
