I John 3:19-24
Right before Jesus Christ departed from the Earth, He promised peace of heart for us. Yet, I suspect some Christ-followers might say their heart is more troubled and full of fear than peace. Why is that? Today’s text addresses that issue.
v. 19-21 - The fact of assurance
Ref: Revelation 12:10-11
v. 22 - The fruit of assurance = a robust prayer life.
We have not because we ask not!
Ref: Psalms 66:18
I Peter 3:7
v. 23-24 - The fount of assurance - How do we maintain a confident heart?
Ref: John 15:1-5 - Abide in Him!
Put our eyes on God’s grace, not the condemnation of our heart.
We cannot let our emotions drive us. Put your faith in the facts of scripture and let your feelings follow the facts.
