New Sermon Series Begins Next Week: That You May Know: Confident Discipleship for the Long Haul. Have you ever had the opportunity to sit at the feet of someone wise, trusted, and road-tested? Perhaps a grandparent, a work mentor, a pastor of retiring age. They are in the mood to talk about life and lessons learned. They are going to impart wisdom in their own way, and you know that if you can cultivate ears to hear, if you can pick out the melody amidst the harmonies, you are receiving a treasure beyond measure. We have such an opportunity as we explore 1 John together this summer. John the “beloved disciple” has walked with Jesus, helped launch his kingdom movement, and pastored people and communities for a lifetime. In this beautiful little letter he is reflecting on the fundamental realities of life as Jesus’ followers: faith, love, obedience, overcoming sin, abiding in Christ. His invitation is not just to believe these are true but to experience the joyful assurance that comes when we live as if they are true!
