JESUS: Lord and Savior

Chris’ latest book just came out and can be found on Amazon.com. Just click the pic below to find it. Sadly there is some confusion and debate about what it means to put one’s faith in Christ. In particular, can He be one’s Savior without being their Lord? In this post-Christian nation we live in, […]

Day 14 (teaching)

THE GENUINE STEWARDSHIP (cont.) The second area proclaimed by John as proof of Genuine Stewardship is: 2. HOW WE WITNESS (verses 6-12) The key words in this portion are: “witness”, found 6 times; “record,” found 3 times; and “testified” found 1 time. The synonymy of these words clearly reveals the connection of these verses. Notice […]

Day 14 (reading)

6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these […]

A GENUINE STEWARDSHIP (cont.) As we conclude AN EXPRESSION of the LOVE being a fundamental part of genuine Lordship, we find that verse 8 concludes with and verse 16 restates three beautiful and life changing words, God is love. Of these three words commentator John Phillips writes: How thankful we can be that the gods of […]

Day 12 (reading)

1 John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (back)

Day 11 (teaching)

A GENUINE LORDSHIP (cont.) We last noted that the final requirement given by John for genuine Lordship was AN EXPRESSION of the LOVE. These requirements are expressed in the first eight verses of this chapter and the key word was “spirit.” However this final point is expanded upon greatly all the way to the end […]
