Which family are you in?
Bible Text: 1 John 3 | Preacher: David Henderson | Family is important to us. Spiritual Family. God’s Family/Satan’s family. Heaven/Hell.
cWhich family are you in? We are born in the family of satan. Do children need to be taught to be ungrateful. How can we change our family? The Holy Spirit. From a heart if stone to flesh. Why did Jesus have to die on a cross? It a gift of God. A new heart a new start. You will never be good enough for God. It’s his work. Jesus said on the cross “It is finished”. You need a miracle. V9 no one who is born of God will continue to sin. How do you experience this supernatural transformation sometimes slow sometimes fast. How can you tell… you are no longer under the control of sin. It doesn’t mean that you don’t sin we are still weak. But we are no longer the control of sin. We hate sin we love God. If you are born again you will produce Godly fruit. How much is visible?
2. If you are born again in God’s family, are you a part of the local church? Is is a social club for you? For a social club there is no commitment required? You should be committed to your local church as if they were you family. You should love your local church(brethren). Share meals? Mealtimes are really important. What about sharing your homes? Are you willing to share possessions, clothes, foods, time? Are you willing to lay down your lives?
